This recipe was taken from Martha Stewart Living.
1 cup sugar
juice from 1 lemon
2 sticks of cinnamon
3 firm ripe peaches, halved and pitted
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, 2 cups of water, and the 2 cinnamon sticks. Bring water to a simmer over medium-high, and cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar has dissolved. Add lemon juice and peaches. Simmer until peaches are tender when pierced with a tip of a knife, about 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat, and let peaches cool in the poaching liquid. Using a slotted spoon, remove peaches from poaching liquid, peel, discarding skins. Slice peach halves into 6 wedges each. Transfer peaches and poaching liquid into a bowl. Cover; refrigerate until chilled.
Serve with your favorite ice cream, or yogurt or keffir
