  1. Recipe Instructions * When buying peaches, look for those with a yellow background color (although that ranges from a pale creamy color to a bright gold, depending on the variety), with no traces of green (a sign that the fruit was picked too early and will not ripen). Combine the water and sugar in a deep 2-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the peaches. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove the peaches from the syrup to a bowl. Stir the torn mint leaves into the syrup and simmer 1 minute. Pour the hot syrup over the peaches. Cool. Refrigerate several hours. To serve, place each peach in a small bowl. Spoon syrup over and garnish with a mint sprig. This recipe yields 4 servings.
