AT A GLANCE
For an equally delicious but different flavour, substitute 6 large basil leaves for the lavender.
|01||Place all ingredients, except stone fruit, and 1½ cups water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Add nectarines, cover with a round of baking paper, then a plate and cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Add peach halves and apricots, re-cover and cook for another 15 minutes or until fruit is tender. Cool, then remove skins from stone fruit.|
|02||For walnut and honey cream sandwiches, combine honey, cream and walnuts in a small bowl, then spread mixture equally over half the brioche slices and top with remaining slices. Dust the tops with icing sugar.|
|03||Serve stone fruit and syrup at room temperature or chilled, with walnut and honey cream sandwiches passed separately.|
