This simple recipe for macerated peaches is magical. A few quick steps will turn this fruit into an easy-as-pie, satisfying dessert.
5 or 6 peaches, sliced
1 tablespoon sugar

Place the peaches in a glass bowl. With a spoon, sprinkle the sugar over them. Squeeze the lemon juice over them. Add the mint and toss everything together.
