Peaches with Riesling Sauce
SmartPoints® value per serving
Riesling wine perfectly complements the sweet juiciness of summer peaches. A sprinkling of crystallized ginger adds just enough spice.
1½ Tbsp, warm
Fresh lemon juice
2 fl oz, a medium-bodied Riesling like Yellowtail suggested
4 large, ripe, thickly sliced
4⅛ gm, minced
- In a small saucepan, combine water, sugar and lemon juice; cook over medium-high heat until syrupy, approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in wine; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until wine reduces by half and mixture is syrupy, about 4 to 6 minutes; remove from heat and let cool.
- Once cooled, toss syrup with peaches in a serving bowl and allow to sit at room temperature for several minutes; toss again. Serve, sprinkled with ginger. Yields about 1 cup peaches and 1 teaspoon ginger per serving.
