Peaches in Red Wine.
6 Tbs. granulated sugar
Red wine (Your choice. I like to use San Giovesse, Merlot or Pinot)
Wash peaches in cold water. Peel and slice into wedges. Discard pits. Place wedges in large bowl. Sprinkle peaches with sugar and the juice of half a lemon. Mix gently with a wooden spoon or by hand to avoid bruising the fruit. Peaches are delicate. Allow peaches to sit with sugar for 20 minutes, or until sugar has thoroughly dissolved. The fruit will soften slightly in the process.
Place peach wedges into individual serving bowls. Add enough red wine to each serving to just cover the peaches. Allow them to sit another 30 - 45 minutes. The longer they sit, to more intense the wine flavor. I don’t recommend allowing them to sit any longer than 45 minutes or the wine flavor will dominate the peach flavor.
Can be served room temp or slightly chilled. Serves 6
