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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
