    2       lb           Ripe peaches
    3                    Whole cloves
    3                    Allspice berries
    3                    Cardamom pods
    2       c            Freshly squeezed orange
                         -juice
    3       tb           Fresh lime juice, or to
                         -taste
    3       tb           To 4 tb honey or brown sugar
                         -(or to taste)
    1       t            Ground cinnamon
    1       t            Ground ginger
    1       c            Nonfat yogurt
    1       tb           Diced candied ginger
                         Sprigs of fresh mint,
                         -for garnish
 
   Drop the peaches in a pot of boiling water and boil
   for 30 seconds. Rinse them under cold water and slip
   off the skins. Pit the peaches and coarsely chop them.
   Tie the cloves, allspice, and cardamom in cheesecloth
   (or wrap in foil and pierce with fork). Combine the
   peaches, spice bundle, orange juice, lime juice,
   honey, cinnamon, and ginger in a heavy saucepan. (The
   amount of honey needed well depend on the sweetness of
   the peaches.) Simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the
   fruit is very soft. Remove the spice bundle and let
   the soup cool to room temperature. Puree the soup in a
   blender and chill.  Just before serving, whisk in the
   yogurt and candied ginger. Correct the
   seasoning,adding honey and lime juice to taste. Serve
   in glass bowls or wine goblets, garnishing each with a
   sprig of mint. Serves 4-6.
