Seasonal stonefruit a delightful treat, but when you add this sweet and pungent ginger-lime syrup to it you now have an exceptionally refreshing and pretty dish.
In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the water, sugar, and ginger to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium heatproof bowl; discard the ginger. Stir the lime juice into the syrup and then refrigerate until cool, about 1 hour.
