- Active Time 20m
- Total Time 2h 20m
- 6 yellow- or white-fleshed peaches
- 1 bottle fruity white or red wine or Champagne
- 1/3-2/3 cup sugar
- 1 vanilla bean split lengthwise
Bring a saucepan three-fourths full of water to a boil. Dip the peaches into the boiling water, one at a time, for 5 seconds each. Lift out with a slotted spoon and, using a sharp paring knife, peel the peaches. Halve each along the natural line and remove the pits.
In a saucepan large enough to hold all the peaches in a single layer, combine the wine, sugar and vanilla bean. Heat gently, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Taste and add enough extra sugar to achieve a pleasant sweetness. Bring to a simmer, add the peaches and simmer for 2-5 minutes, depending on ripeness, or until barely tender.
Transfer the peaches and cooking liquid to a deep glass bowl (peaches should be completely covered by liquid) and cool to room temperature. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 days, or up to 3 days.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the peach halves to large wine glasses, placing 2 halves in each glass. Half-fill each glass with poaching liquid and serve.
