Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Chilled Peach Soup)

Welcome friends to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday! Although the peak peach season here in the Midwest isn’t until July/August, the peach orchards are open and peach season has indeed begun. With that being said, today I bring you a delicious chilled peach soup recipe that’s perfect for these hot evenings we’re already having. The Peach Schnapps adds a nice additional peach flavor to this dish and for a nice treat you could also add some extra Schnapps just before serving, or serve a little shot of Schnapps on the side. This soup is also great served alongside a nice pound cake or cheese cake as well if you want to treat this as a dessert course. It’s a pretty simple soup dish to make even if you decide to peel your peaches first which is not really necessary since everything is put through a blender in the end. If you do decide to peel your peaches just cut an X in the bottom of each peach, drop them in a pot of boiling water for about 30-60 seconds, and then transfer them immediately to a bowl of ice water. The peel will come right off. Serve this soup to your guests next time you have a get-together and see how many rave reviews you get. As always, feel free to post comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss any Yummy Recipe Wednesday or Gluten Free Friday recipe posts.

Chilled Peach Soup

  • 1 cup Dry White Wine
  • 1 cup Peach Schnapps
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Chopped Fresh Mint Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 2 cups Half-And-Half Cream
  • 10 Fresh Peaches, sliced

1. Place the white wine, peach schnapps, sugar, mint leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and half-and-half in a bowl and stir until well blended and sugar is dissolved.
2. Add the sliced peaches and transfer the mixture to a saucepan; cook over medium heat for 15 minutes, stirring frequently and reducing heat if necessary to prevent scorching the cream.
3. Remove the pan from the heat when the peaches are tender; cool to a safe temperature for blending.
4. Process the peach mixture in a blender or food processor until completely smooth.
5. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve; serve chilled.
