Peaches In Sauternes
- 6 ripe yellow or white peaches - (to 8)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 bottle good Sauternes - (375 ml)
- 1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur (Grand Marnier recommended)
Bring a pot of water to a boil and immerse the peaches in the water for 1 to 2 minutes, until the skins come off easily. Remove them with a slotted spoon and place them in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking.
Peel the peaches and then slice them in wedges off the pit and into a bowl. Stir in the sugar, Sauternes, and orange liqueur. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight. Serve cool but not cold.
