Riesling-Poached Peaches and Cherries
When working with a limited palette, good ingredients make all the difference. We call for vanilla beans here because they impart fragrance and thousands of tiny, flavorful specks. They're worth the splurge, but feel free to substitute 2 tsp. vanilla extract for the beans. And if you like, trade the homemade whipped cream for a scoop of ice cream.
