Poached Peach MIMOSAS R E C I P E A N D P H O T O G R A P H Y J E N E L L E M C C U L L O C H The mimosa is a staple of every brunch, traditionally made with sparkling wine and orange juice. This recipe uses poached peaches for a refreshing twist. DIRECTIONS Combine water, sugar and honey in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar and honey are dissolved. Add peach halves and simmer for 5-10 minutes, turning until tender. Remove peaches and reduce poaching liquid by half. Put peaches in a small, sturdy bowl and reserve liquid in a separate bowl. Cool both. Using a muddler or the back of a spoon, press peaches against the side of the bowl. Press hard and twist. The goal is to break up the fruit, release liquid and intensify the flavour. Add a dollop of muddled peaches to champagne glasses, then add a ½ tsp of poaching liquid to each glass. Top with sparkling wine. OH INGREDIENTS 2 cups water ¼ cup granulated sugar ¼ cup honey 2-3 peaches, halved and pitted Sparkling wine Get more recipes at ourhomes.ca/mag/cook online 24 | ourhomes S P R I N G 2 0 1 8 good taste
