Coarse-grained and a light golden color, turbinado sugar has a mild molasses taste. Look for it near granulated sugar in the supermarket. If you can't find turbinado, use 1/2 cup unpacked light brown sugar. The fiery kick from the crushed red pepper enlivens the fruits' sweetness. Omit it if you're sensitive to spiciness.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring water and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan; cook 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Add pepper, ginger, anise, and cinnamon. Reduce heat; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 20 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in wine and rind. Cool completely. Strain mixture through a small sieve over a bowl; discard solids.

Step 2

Combine wine mixture and fruit in a bowl, and toss gently. Chill 30 minutes.
