Great to serve with a Holiday meal. These Peaches are almost too beautiful to eat, they are the perfect festive relish for meats. A simple yet quick recipe, where no canning is involved for old fashioned goodness!
* 2 cups water
* 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
* 1/4 cup red wine
* 2 tablespoons honey
* 1/2 teaspoon peppercorns
* 4 cloves
* 2 allspice berries
* 1/2 stick cinnamon
* 1 bay leaf
How to make it
To peel the peaches, lower them a few at a time into boiling water for a minute or so, and immediately refresh them in a bath of ice water.
When cool, use a paring knife to remove the skins, which should come off easily.
Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits.
If you have cling peaches (rather than free-stone), the flesh won't slip away from the pit to make nice halves, so you'll need to cut the fruit off the pit.
To make the pickling solution, combine the water, vinegar, wine, honey, peppercorns, cloves, allspice, cinnamon and bay leaf in a heavy-bottomed pot or saucepan.
Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the peach segments and cook just until tender, 3 to 5 minutes: test with a toothpick or sharp knife.
(Make sure the peaches are cooked through or they will turn brown.)
Carefully remove the peaches with a slotted spoon; they will be quite delicate.
Let the pickling mixture cool slightly and then strain over the peaches. **Cover and refrigerate overnight or for up to a week.**
**Please note: Peach leaves can be toxic and should not be used in this recipe. **
Er.... more moving recipes to something I can print out. My brother is into Spice and Wolf and wants to try this. I've gotten into canning, so I am up for making it.
I have finally started to actually publish my story! For the moment, expect a new chapter each month.
The Case of the Midnight Channel"When a strange letter summons the Mouri family to Inaba, Ran is expecting a case. She's not expecting it to involve the TV, though.
If Naoto investigated everyone who came to visit Inaba, she'd have little time for real cases. When Yukiko reports that the Midnight Channel is back, however, she starts to wonder if the visitors are connected. Especially when the image clears, unveiling yet another mystery."
Short version: I'm taking various DC/MK characters to Inaba (where Persona 4 takes place) and dropping them through the TV to face their Shadows!Cross-posted:Case of the Midnight Channel at Archive of our Own.
