nectarines rose waterIngredients

Serves 4

2 cups (500g) Jalna Sweet & Creamy Greek Yoghourt
2-3 tsp rosewater essence, to taste
2 tbsps (40ml) honey, or to taste
1 cup (160g) pistachios, coarsely chopped
4 peaches or nectarines, halved, stones removed
Mint leaves, to garnish


Line a colander with muslin, a chux cloth or a teatowel large enough for the edges to hang over the side of the colander. Place colander over a large bowl or jug. Put Jalna yoghourt in the cloth lined colander and loosely cover with cloth or plastic wrap.
Place bowl in refrigerator for up to 2 days until it thickens like cottage cheese consistency (the longer it drains the thicker it becomes).

Stir in rosewater, to taste. Serve as an accompaniment to dessert or shape into small balls, but keep covered so it does not dry out.

When ready to serve, heat a frypan over a moderately low heat, add pistachios and enough honey to coat them. Heat for a few minutes (or microwave). With a fork remove pistachios and place on baking paper to cool.

Place nectarine or peach halves cut side down in the pan and heat gently for 5 – 8 minutes in the honey, adding more if required, until softened and lightly caramelised. Gently push them around in the pan so they don’t brown too much.

Serve fruit warm or cold with labne on top or to the side if fruit is warm. Garnish with honey pistachios and fresh mint leaves.
