DIRECTIONS

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil and immerse the peaches for a minute or two, until the skins come off easily; remove them with a slotted spoon and place them in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking. (My peaches probably weren't peeled as prettily as Ina's, but I just skipped this process and went ahead and peeled them.).
  • Peel the peaches, then slice into wedges off the pit and into a bowl.
  • Stir in the sugar, Sauternes, and orange liqueur.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  • Serve cool, but not cold.
