In her cookbook, Once Upon a Chef, Jennifer Segal puts a whole slew of stone fruit — peaches included — to use in a refreshing snack that stands out thanks to a potent bite of ginger.

Makes 4 servings

1 cup water

½ cup sugar

½ cup sliced fresh ginger, unpeeled

¼ cup fresh lime juice

3 ripe peaches, sliced

3 ripe plums, sliced

3 ripe nectarines, sliced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

Instructions: In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the water, sugar and ginger to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium heatproof bowl; discard the ginger. Stir the lime juice into the syrup and then refrigerate until cool, about 1 hour.

In a shallow serving bowl, combine the sliced fruits and mint. Pour the cooled syrup over the fruit. Cover and chill for at least 45 minutes or up to a few hours. Serve the fruit and syrup in bowls with spoons.
