DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the water, sugar, vanilla bean, and lemon zest in a medium saucepan.
  • Place over low heat and stir until sugar dissolves.
  • Raise the heat to high and bring the syrup to a boil.
  • Stir in the fruit and the lemon juice.
  • Cover the fruit with a lid slightly smaller than the diameter of the saucepan.
  • This will keep the fruit submerged in the syrup.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cook about 8 minutes.
  • Allow the fruit to cool in the syrup, still covered, to room temperature.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and chill at least 30 minutes before serving.
  • To serve:
  • May be served as is, garnished with whipped cream.
  • Or use as a garnish for cakes, filling for crepes or as an ice cream topping.
