Strawberries and Oranges with Vanilla-Scented Wine

Late-harvest Riesling is sweeter than other Rieslings. If you can't find it, try an equally sweet dessert wine such as Sauternes, Muscat, or late-harvest Gewürztraminer. Prepare and chill this refreshingly light dessert earlier in the day. If hosting a baby shower, honor the mom-to-be with a nonalcoholic version using white grape juice in place of the wine.

Cooking Light APRIL 2004

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups late-harvest Riesling or other dessert wine
  • 6 (4-inch) strips orange rind
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (6-inch) piece vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 6 cups halved strawberries
  • 2 1/2 cups orange sections
  • Mint sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean; add seeds and bean to wine mixture. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Strain mixture through a sieve over a large bowl; discard solids. Let cool 30 minutes; discard rind. Stir in strawberries and oranges. Cover and chill. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.
