Peaches in Sangria Syrup
2 cups dry red wine
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 long strips orange zest
2 long strips lemon zest
8 large, ripe peaches
Biscotti, preferably with almond or orange flavors
Combine the red wine, orange juice, sugar, cinnamon stick, orange zest and lemon zest in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside 5 minutes.
Bring a pan of water to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the peaches. (You may need to work in 2 batches.) Time 1 minute. Transfer to a colander. When cool enough to handle, peel the peaches and slice into a large bowl.
Remove the citrus zest from the sangria syrup and pour over the peaches; leave the cinnamon stick with the peaches. Chill at least 3 hours.
Spoon the peaches and syrup into bowls and serve with biscotti.
Makes 8 servings.
