1. Gently heat the sugar and water in a small pan with the lemongrass over a low-medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Carefully add the peaches or apricots, and gently press a circle of greaseproof paper down on top to keep the fruit covered with liquid. Cook at a very gentle simmer for 45 minutes for apricots, or 1012 minutes for peaches, or until the fruit is tender, but not squishy. Pour into a bowl to cool.
