Healthy Sweets: Peaches in White Wine
I really can’t believe we are already half way through the summer! I’m sure many of you, just like me, love the fresh fruits available during this time of year. This week I have a simple recipe that goes great as an afternoon snack or an after dinner treat! Who knew something so sweet and tasty could be healthy too!
4 large peaches
2 Tbs confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1/2 cup medium or sweet white wine, chilled
1 Using a sharp knife, halve the peaches, then remove the pits and discard them. Peel the peaches, if you prefer. Slice into thin wedges.
2 Place the peach wedges in a glass serving bowl and sprinkle over the sugar.
3 Using a sharp knife, pare the rind from the orange. Cut the orange rind into short thin sticks and place them in a bowl of cold water. Reserve.
4 Squeeze the juice from the orange and pour over the peaches, together with the chilled wine.
5 Cover and place the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to let the peaches marinate and chill.
6 Remove the orange rind sticks from the water and pat dry with paper towels.
7 Decorate the chilled marinated peaches with the strips of orange rind and serve immediately.
