Rosé Poached Peaches with Whipped Coconut Cream

Serves 6

rosé poached peaches

ingredients


1 bottle rosé

2 cup honey 

4 whole star anise

1 vanilla bean, split 

One 2-inch strip of citrus peel 

One 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced lengthwise   

3 firm but ripe peaches, halved and pits removed

1 to 2 cups of water 

¼ cup pistachios, roughly chopped

mint leaves for garnish

whipped coconut cream

instructions


Place a medium, wide bottomed pot or dutch oven on the stove and add the rosé, honey, star anise, vanilla, citrus peel, and ginger and stir to combine. You want to use a pot that will fit all six halves of the peaches in an even layer. Place the peaches in the liquid, cut side facing up and add enough water to cover the peaches by about half an inch. Bring the poaching liquid to a simmer over low heat. Cook until the peaches are tender, about 30 minutes depending on the ripeness of the peaches. With a slotted spoon, transfer the peaches to a platter and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Continue to simmer the liquid for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. The liquid will reduce to about 1 cup. 

To serve, place a large dollop of coconut cream in the bottom of each bowl and top with half a peach, a drizzle of reduced syrup, pistachios and mint.

coconut whipped cream

ingredients


4, 5.4 ounce cans of coconut cream (or 2 cans full fat coconut milk)

¼ cup honey

1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped

instructions


Chill the coconut cream or coconut milk in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. 

When ready to use, open the cans without shaking and pour off any thin liquid (this liquid can be saved to use in smoothies or for cooking). Place the thick coconut cream into a chilled bowl with the honey and vanilla and whisk until light and creamy. Chill until ready to serve.
