  1. Transfer stone fruit and mint to a serving plate and drizzle with honey.

  2. Line a plate with paper towels and set it near the stove.

  3. Heat a wok or skillet with cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add first portion of vinegar and some salt and pepper. Set mushrooms aside.

  4. Fill a large saute pan with water. Add second portion of vinegar (note: a little vinegar in the water helps the eggs to hold their shape). Heat over high heat until water begins to simmer (a few small bubbles rising from the bottom).

  5. Gently tip each egg into the simmering water so that none are touching.

  6. Simmer eggs to your desired degree of doneness - for cooked whites and soft yolks this should take 4 to 5 minutes (if unsure, remove one of the eggs and test it).

  7. Use a slotted spoon to transfer eggs to paper towel-lined plate.

  8. Toast English muffins.

  9. Toss arugula with olive oil and some black pepper.

  10. Assemble Eggs Benedict by topping English muffins with aioli, mushrooms, arugula, and then eggs.

  11. Season eggs with some salt and pepper. Serve Eggs Benedict with stone fruit on the side. Enjoy!
