You'll need

3 white or yellow peaches, cut into wedges 3 white or yellow nectarines, cut into wedges 4 apricots, cut into wedges 2 tbsp brown sugar 1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped ½ lemon, juiced To serve: coarsely torn mint To serve: toasted sesame seeds   Tahini labne 800 gm Greek-style yoghurt 60 gm (¼ cup) brown sugar 2 tbsp tahini

Method

  • For labne, in a fine sieve lined with muslin over a bowl, layer a quarter each of yoghurt, sugar and tahini, and repeat so you have 4 layers of each. Cover and refrigerate overnight to drain.
  • 02
  • Combine fruit in a bowl with sugar, vanilla seeds and lemon juice, then refrigerate for 30 minutes for flavours to develop. To serve, top with tahini labne, and scatter with mint and sesame seeds.
