Peaches in Wine and Honey



I had some leftover peaches and nectarines the other night, and I was in the mood for something to accompany some excellent vanilla ice cream that happened to be sitting in my freezer. So, very inpromptu, I made up this little recipe:

Peaches in Wine and Honey
serves 2, generously

3 small peaches
1 nectarine
1 tbsp light brown demerara sugar
pat of butter
100 ml white wine
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon

Cut the peaches and nectarines into rough chunks. (If you feel fiddly, go ahead and peel the peaches - I didn't feel fiddly, so I didn't. It was fine.) Put them in a small saucepan with the butter and the brown sugar - heat on medium heat until the butter is melted. Add the white wine, and let the peaches simmer for 2-3 minutes until somewhat softened but definitely not mushy. Stir in the honey. Finish with a sprinkle of cinnamon, and serve with great vanilla ice cream.
