  • 2 pounds ripe peaches (about 6 large)

Dip peaches, 1 at a time, into boiling water to cover 1 minute. Plunge peaches immediately into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain and slip skins off. Cut peaches into quarters.

Bring sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat, and add peach quarters; cover and simmer 5 minutes. Cool.

Process peach mixture in batches in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

Stir together peach mixture, whipping cream, wine, and lemon rind; chill. Garnish, if desired. Chill 2 hours.
