WINE SOAKED PEACHES
4 peaches (pitted, sliced into eighths)
1 bottle white wine (about 5 cups)
1/2 cup sugar
2 orange peels
1 vanilla bean (split)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
vanilla ice cream (to serve)
store-bought angel food cake (to serve)
lime zest (to garnish)
whipped cream (to serve)
Place peaches in a large mason jar.
In a medium saucepan, add wine, sugar and orange peel, and allow to reduce until 4 cups. Once reduced, pour mixture over peaches in mason jar. Add vanilla bean and close mason jar, allowing peaches to soak until tender, about 1 hour.
For the Whipped Cream: in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with whisk attachment, add the heavy cream. Whip on medium-high speed until it foams. Add sugar and continue whipping until soft/medium peaks form.
To Serve: place a slice of angel food cake in a bowl. Top with ice cream and peaches. Serve with whipped cream and garnish with lime zest.
For the Simple Syrup: in a small saucepan add the water and sugar. Bring to a simmer and allow sugar to dissolve. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
– This is the perfect dessert to bring to a party!
– Make it an easy spritzer by adding a slice of peach, wine syrup, a splash of white wine and top with seltzer.
