Ingredients:

2 1/4 lbs fresh Calanda peaches
1 leek
1/2 onion
3 1/4 cups poultry stock
1/2 cup single cream
3 tbsp oil
About 2 tbsp butter
Salt
Pepper
Nutmeg
Cinnamon
3 cloves
Garnish:
2 peaches
5 oz Ibérico ham
Fresh mint

Preparation:

Chop the onion and the white part of the leek and sauté gently in the hot oil in a saucepan. Wash the peaches, cut in half and remove the pits. Cut into pieces, add to the onion and leek mixture, and fry gently together. Cover with the stock, season with salt, pepper a little grated nutmeg, a pinch of cinnamon and the cloves stuck into a piece of onion (this makes it easier to remove them later). Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the peaches are soft. Remove the onion with the cloves, blend the soup, add the cream and bring to a boil. Check the seasoning, add the butter and leave to cool. At the last minute, sprinkle with mint and serve with peaches and ham.

Garnish: Blanch and peel the peaches. Cut into thin slices. Cut the iberico ham into strips.
