Peaches in Red Wine

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
Leaving the peels on the peaches helps them retain their shape and texture and cuts down on preparation time. Wash the fuzz off the peel before using.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange rind strips (about 1 orange)
  • 1/4 cup lemon rind strips (about 2 large lemons)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 7 whole cloves
  • 4 black peppercorns
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle dry red wine (such as Côtes du Rhône)
  • 6 cups fresh sliced peaches (about 2 1/4 pounds)
