This is one of those recipes that’s crazy good. Don’t you just love having fruit for dessert? Even better is fruit with wine. Summer is the perfect time to have a refreshing light dessert. Wine Soaked White Peaches will give you that height-of-the-summer flavor you’ve been craving.

Have you ever tasted a dish and thought to yourself, so this is how it’s supposed to be served? This is one of those recipes.
I love simple recipes that show off the flavor of the star ingredient and this one is no exception. I picked white peaches, but you can use regular peaches instead.
With only four ingredients, this dessert takes minutes to make and after a little soaking time, you’re good to go. Unfortunately, my first couple of batches of this was immediately consumed and it was still delicious!
Peaches are also nutrition powerhouses. They combat free radicals, reduces inflammation, eliminates the growth of candida, helps fight and prevent cancers, helps preventing heart disease, and helps protect your eyes.
Make sure you use peaches when they taste the best. Their peak season is June – August. You can also use frozen peaches in winter.
Buy organic whenever you can, especially peaches. Since you are using the rind of the orange in this recipe, I would buy organic also.
Here’s the going-to-crave-it-every-night Wine Soaked White Peaches Recipe:
Wine Soaked White Peaches
- 4 large white organic white peaches
- 1 organic orange
- 1 cup Pinot Grigio
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Using a sharp knife, slice the peaches in thin slices and place in a serving bowl.
- Juice the orange and cut rind into small matchsticks.
- In a separate bowl, mix the wine, honey, orange juice and rind together. Pour over peaches.
- Cover and place in refrigerator to soak and chill for an hour. Serve immediately.
You can use one of these to squeeze your orange. It’s easy and less mess than a juicer.
