Applying simple pairing principles, you may wish for an inspired dessert. Feel free to vary quantities, proportions and ingredients; all you really need is your peaches and vino.
- 4 Nectarines or Peaches
- 2 cups Lambrusco
- 1/4 cup sugar
- A cinnamon stick
- Mint Leaves
4 peaches each cut with a small crosswise incision where the stem is. Place into boiling water, blanch for 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon remove each peach and place into a bowl of ice water. After 10 minutes, remove the peach and place cross wise cut down into a bowl and set aside.
In a saucepan over a medium heat, pour two glasses of Lambrusco, 1/4 cup of sugar, a stick of cinnamon.
Simmer together for 3 minutes over medium heat, and then pour the hot liquid over the peaches in the bowl.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow it to stand for at least 2 hours to overnight. Can be served warmed from the oven (bake 20 minutes 170 F) or placed into a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
