From the kitchen of:

Rachael Ray 2, 4, 6, 8: Great Meals for Couples or Crowds (Clarkson Potter Publishers, Crown Publishing Group, 2006), page 80.


1 1/2 c. red wine

1/2 c. sugar

1 cinnamon stick

2-3 whole peppercorns

1-2 strips lemon zest

2 large ripe peaches, halved and pitted

1 pint vanilla bean ice cream


Combine the wine, sugar, cinnamon, peppercorns, and zest in a sauce pot; cook over medium-high heat until it reduces to a syrup. This will take 12-15 minutes.

Remove the cinnamon, pepercorns, and zest with a slotted spoon - discard them.

Peel the peaches, if desired.

Add the peach halves, and turn to coat in the wine sauce.

Spoon the winey peaches into dish, and top them with ice cream.
