Peaches with Riesling Sauce
- Total Time
Riesling wine perfectly complements the sweet juiciness of summer peaches. A sprinkling of crystallized ginger adds just enough spice.
water1 ½ Tbsp, warm
fresh lemon juice½ tsp
white wine¼ cup(s), a medium-bodied Riesling like Yellowtail suggested
peach(es)4 large, ripe, thickly sliced
crystallized ginger1 ¼ Tbsp, 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.
