Peach and strawberry vanilla salad
4 large firm ripe peaches
1 vanilla pod
2 tablespoon of vodka
2 tablespoons sieved icing sugar

Wash and dry the peaches, cut in half around the middle and twist in half. Remove the stones and cut each half into 8 cubes; no need to peel the skin gives colour and texture to the mix. Hull the strawberries and cut in half or in quarters if they are large ones.
Split the vanilla pod and scrape out the seeds. Wrap the pod in cling film and use for flavouring custards ice creams or sauces
Put the prepared fruit and vanilla seeds in a bowl, add the sieved icing sugar and the vodka and stir well.
Cover with cling film and leave at room temperature to macerate.
