Thursday Recipe





Sauvignon Blanc-Infused Yellow Peach and Vanilla Ice Pops
Makes 10 ice pops

INGREDIENTS
4 ounces organic dark cane sugar
1 1-inch piece of vanilla bean, split lengthwise
3-4 ripe or overripe yellow peaches
7 ounces Sauvignon Blanc (2011 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc recommended)

PREPARATION
Combine sugar and 4 fluid ounces water in a saucepan. Gently heat, while stirring, until sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat, add cut vanilla bean and steep for 15 minutes. Remove bean and allow syrup to cool completely.

Rinse peaches and pat dry. With paring knife, remove pits and stems. Lightly puree peaches, being sure to leave some texture, resulting in about 16 fluid ounces. Combine puree with cooled vanilla syrup and Sauvignon Blanc, stirring well to incorporate.

Pour into molds, add sticks and freeze until solid (about 4 to 6 hours). Unmold and serve either at once or place in plastic bags for storage.
