Directions:

  1. Wash the peaches, stick a clove in each one, and put in a pan with the wine.
  2. Add the peel of a well-scrubbed lemon, honey, and nutmeg or cinnamon to taste.
  3. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer, covered, until the peaches are tender and almost at bursting point.
Tips:
  • This dessert is highly adaptable; we have cooked hard little apricots or nectarines the same way, or used up leftover brandy, whiskey, or apple or grape juice instead. Chilled and piled up in a dish with the syrupy remains of the juice poured over it, and with plain yogurt or cream served separately, it can be a grand party dessert. Any leftovers never survive breakfast time.
