This is a French dessert that is so easy
and so elegant - very gourmet. My husband gave this a "10" rating. Be sure and
try Peches au vin when fresh peaches are in season.
This recipe was shared with me by Patti Scaramuzzo. Patti says,
"All that I know about this recipe is that it is something that my parents had when we lived in France (1968-1973). It was also something that my father's family did. Whether it was a cool 70's idea (like pigs in a blanket) or a family thing, I'm not sure. Let's pretend it's a family thing.....
He was born in Poitiers, France and lived in both Paris and Ambares (in the Bordeaux region). They spent most summers at the house in Ambares, so I expect this is a typical French, summer dessert -- refreshing and summer-like."

Peches au vin - Peaches in Wine
Yields: 1 serving per peach
Prep time: 10 min
1 ripe peach, peeled, pitted, and sliced*
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
* How To Peel Peaches
- Using a slotted spoon, place each peach (one at a time) in boiling
water for about 10 seconds. Remove from boiling water, place in iced water
to stop any cooking, and then peel off the skin.
Place the equivalent of one peach in each wine glass for each serving. Drizzle the peach juices over the top.
Pour red wine over the sliced peaches in the wine glass. Enjoy each delicious peach slice, one at a time,
with sips of wine in between. Eat, drink, and enjoy
