This is a simple and delicious dessert -- one of my favorites. The richness of the sauce balances well with the simple flavors of vanilla ice cream and fresh fruit. I prefer to use fresh sliced peaches or mango, but I'm sure other fruits would be delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour one bottle of red wine into a saucepan.
  2. Slice the vanilla bean lengthwise. (Do not substitue vanilla extract for the bean -- the flavor is not anywhere near the same or as good.).
  3. Add the vanilla bean, sugar and peppercorns and keep on a low, rolling boil until the liquid reduces to about a cup. (this will take around a half an hour).
  4. Remove from heat and allow to finish thickening.
  5. Pour sauce over sliced fresh fruit (I prefer peaches or mango) and all natural vanilla ice cream.
  6. The sauce will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
