Sliced peaches, nectarines and plums go from simple to sublime when soaked in a refreshing ginger-lime syrup infused with fresh mint. Be sure to let the fruit marinate for at least 45 minutes but not too much longer or the ginger will mellow out. Serve alone as a light dessert or as an elegant accompaniment to pound cake, vanilla ice cream or both!
