“Easy but elegant way to serve juicy, ripe summer peaches, from Ina Garten. If you are unable to get your hands on a nice Sauternes, substitute with another good quality sweet white dessert wine. But, do not confuse Sauternes with Sauterne--it is an entirely different animal, the former being a sweet French dessert wine, the latter being a dry to semisweet wine made in the States.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 -8 very ripe yellow peaches or 6 -8 white peaches
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (375 ml) bottlegood Sauternes wine
  • 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur (Grand Marnier recommended)

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil and immerse the peaches for a minute or two, until the skins come off easily; remove them with a slotted spoon and place them in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking. (My peaches probably weren't peeled as prettily as Ina's, but I just skipped this process and went ahead and peeled them.).
  2. Peel the peaches, then slice into wedges off the pit and into a bowl.
  3. Stir in the sugar, Sauternes, and orange liqueur.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  5. Serve cool, but not cold.
