Peach Slices Wrapped In Prosciutto with Vintage Cheddar and Honey


Grilled peaches wrapped with prosciutto, sharp cheddar drizzled with honey and fresh figs

I love this quick, easy, recipe and 19seventies girl has been known to use peaches, figs, pears and apricots when available .  Using pears  extends this recipe to other times in the year when figs and stone fruits are not in season.  I have never had leftovers from this dish.

Serves 12 as part of a selection of starters

You need

150 g of prosciutto

8 yellow freestone peaches

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tablespoon maple syrup

fresh thyme sprigs for garnish

a piece of sheep milk pecorino, about 200gms

1 teaspoon of honey for drizzling

To make

Cut unpeeled peaches in half and remove stone, cut the halves into quarters.

Wrap each piece of peach with prosciutto

Heat olive oil and maple syrup gently in a heavy based frypan

Place all the wrapped peaches in the frypan and cook on a gentle low heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Lift carefully from frypan and arrange on serving platter so that 2/3 of the platter is covered with the peaches wrapped in prosciutto and on the other third  crumbled vintage cheese with a small drizzle of pure honey on top.

Garish with a sprig or two of thyme.
