Nectarines Poached in Lavender-Honey Syrup

A sweet end to a dinner party, this unique dessert tastes great any way you prefer to serve it--warm, at room temperature, or chilled. Take care not to overcook the nectarines--they should be tender but not too soft.

4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons dried lavender buds I am going to use fresh from the garden- they are yummy.
6 nectarines, halved and pitted (about 1 1/2 pounds)
6 cups vanilla low-fat frozen yogurt soy or rice ice cream
Fresh lavender sprigs (optional)

Bring first 3 ingredients to a boil in a Dutch oven, stirring to dissolve sugar. Stir in lavender buds. Add nectarines. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes or until nectarines are just tender (do not overcook). Remove nectarines from pan with a slotted spoon, reserving liquid in pan.
Bring liquid to a boil, and cook until reduced to 3 cups (about 10 minutes). Cool slightly. Serve syrup with nectarines and yogurt. Garnish with fresh lavender, if desired.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 nectarine half, 1/2 cup yogurt, and 1/4 cup syrup)

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
