This simple yet elegant dessert uses ripe peaches and sweet honey for a deliciously light pudding. Serve with a dollop of natural yogurt for a refreshing twist. 

Pour boiling water over the peaches, leave for 2 minutes then place in a bowl if ice-cold water. Remove the skins of the peaches. Place the peaches in a small pan and pour in the water and honey.

Scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod and add these and the pod to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes, turning the peaches occasionally, until they are soft. Remove the peaches from the pan. Boil the syrup to reduce by a quarter, then pour over the peaches and leave to cool.

Serve with dollops of natural yogurt.
