Ingredients
  • 3 cups red wine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 2 to 3 whole peppercorns
  • 1 or 2 strips lemon rind
  • 2 large peaches, halved and pitted
  • 1 pint vanilla bean ice cream
  • Whipped cream, in canister
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, to garnish
Directions

Combine the wine, sugar, cinnamon stick, cloves, peppercorns, and lemon rind in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stir to dissolve the sugar, and reduce heat to a bubble.

Bring the poaching liquid to a boil and cook on high heat until reduced to a syrupy texture. Add the peaches and poach the fruit, spooning the syrup over them occasionally, until you can pierce the peach easily with a knife, about 5 minutes.

Put the peach halves in 2 dessert bowls. Top with ice cream, whipped cream, and drizzle with the poaching syrup. Grate a little nutmeg over the top.
