It’s a California thing but we love out of season fruit when it’s good. There’s something decadent about it. And in the summer, this dish is ridiculously good.
6-8 ripe peaches
3 tbs sugar
1 bottle of good french sauternes
1 tbs grand marnier
Boil water in a large pot and immerse the peaches in the water for 1 – 2 minutes until the skins are loose. Remove the peaches with a slotted spoon, place in a bowl of cold water to stop cooking. Peel peaches and slice them in wedges into a bowl. Stir in sugar, Sauternes and Grand Marnier. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Take out of the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes before eating, so they’re not too cold.
