Peches au vin (Peaches in Wine) dessert that is so easy to make and so very elegant – very gourmet! My husband gave this a “10” rating. Sometimes the simplest things are the best.
Be sure and try this fantastic and elegant French peach dessert when fresh peaches are in season. After your have eaten the delicious peach from your wine glass, you drink the remaining red wine. It will remind you a little of sangria.
This Peches au vin (Peaches in Wine) 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 am not sure. Let’s pretend it is 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.”
This recipe makes (1) one serving. Increase recipe for additional servings.
Place the equivalent of one (1) peach in each wine glass for each serving. Drizzle the sugar and reserved peach juices over the top of the sliced peaches. Let the peaches rest for about 15 minutes or so, or until the sugar has dissolved and the fruit has softened a bit.
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!
