Poached peaches pudding

Apart from containing a good quantity of vitamin C, peaches aren't particularly rich in many other nutrients. But as they are completely free from salt and fat, they make a good filling food for anyone suffering with high cholesterol or blood pressure and they do contain some protective antioxidants. They taste and smell brilliant too - particularly with the soft aromas of rose water and star anise. (Serves 4)

Unsalted butter: 50g
Ripe peaches: 4, small, cut in half
Sweet white wine: 150ml
Rose water: 125ml
Star anise: 2
Brown caster sugar: 1 tablespoon
Orange juice: 4 tablespoon
Ricotta cheese: 200g

Melt the butter in an ovenproof dish just large enough to hold the peaches / Put the peach halves, cut-side down, into the dish / Pour over the wineand rose water and add the star anise / Sprinkle with the sugar / Poach, uncovered, in the oven at 180 degrees celcius/350 degrees fahrenheit/ gas mark 4 for about 25 minutes until the peaches are tender / Serve with the orange juice beaten into the ricotta.
