Blueberry-Peach Fruit Salad with Thyme

1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar*
4 peaches
4 nectarines
1 cup blueberries
2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1 tsp ginger, grated
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest

If using water and sugar, place them into a saucepot and bring to a boil. Reduce liquid by half to make a simple syrup; allow to cool. Chop up peaches and nectarines and place them in a bowl with the blueberries. Pour the cooled simple syrup or agave over the mixture. Add thyme, ginger, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Stir and cover with plastic wrap, place in the refrigerator, and allow it to macerate for one hour. Serve.

*Depending on how sweet the fruit is, you may be able to skip sugar. Or use 1 tablespoon of agave syrup in lieu of water and sugar.
