Step 1

1. Bring water, sugar, wine, 1/4 teaspoon salt, the cinnamon, zest, and peppercorns to a boil in a medium stockpot, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add peaches; cover with cheesecloth or parchment to keep submerged. Reduce heat; simmer, turning peaches once, until tender and skins are loose, 7 to 9 minutes.

2. Remove from heat; discard cinnamon stick. Stir in lemon juice, and add half the raspberries. Let cool, covered with cheesecloth to keep moist, for 30 minutes. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Remove peaches, and slip off skins; discard. Strain poaching liquid; discard solids. Serve peaches in liquid and top with remaining raspberries.
