Method

  1. Halve the lemongrass lengthways and place in a small pan.
  2. Gently heat the sugar and 400ml of water in the pan with the lemongrass over a medium-low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Carefully add the peaches or apricots, and gently press a circle of greaseproof paper down on top to keep the fruit covered with liquid.
  4. Cook at a very gentle simmer for 4 to 5 minutes for apricots, or 10 to 12 minutes for peaches, or until the fruit is tender, but not squishy.
  5. Pour into a bowl to cool.
