Peach Granita Sundaes #SundaySupper

Water, sugar, peaches and Riesling wine take a spin in a blender before being poured into a pan and ushered to the freezer.  The final touch?  Serving this icy, peach goodness over a scoop of ice cream.  These Peach Granita Sundaes are the perfect end of Summer dessert.

Sniff, sniff.  Today marks our last full week of Summer vacation as the girls start school on Tuesday.  I’m feeling a bit clueless as I have no clue where our Summer has gone or what we did for the past 11 weeks.  And since I just had to go to my calendar to count how many weeks we’ve had of Summer vacation, I feel even more clueless.  11 weeks?  What kept us so busy for 11 weeks?

 The great thing about going back to school is that means Labor Day is just around the corner which means a shortened school week – I like to ease into things – and of course, one last opportunity to send Summer out in style.  I have grand plans of having friends over, making a fire in the fire pit and watching our kids run around in the back yard while the adults enjoy Peach Granita Sundaes.

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a bottle of Gallo Family’s new Riesling wine that they introduced last month.  It definitely didn’t disappoint!  It’s as if they managed to bottle Summer with notes of honeysuckle, juicy peach, pear and ripe citrus.  I instantly thought of the two remaining Oregold peaches in my fridge and how amazing they would go together and combined them into the easiest and most delicious Summer treat ever.

Water, sugar, peaches and Riesling wine take a spin in a blender before being poured into a pan and ushered to the freezer.  It’s a hands off approach for the rest of the process as the only effort needed is to rake a fork across the mixture every so often as it freezes.  The final touch?  Serving this icy, peach goodness over a scoop of ice cream.  The perfect end of Summer dessert.
