Comments on this Recipe

what can be substituted for wine

eileen, substitute lemon juice for the wine, it works great!

Eileen, fruit juices would be a good substitute for wine in this recipe. Especially something like a sparkling cider.

Sugar??? Come on. Clean this up. Use honey, real maple syrup or hell, the natural usages in the peach will intensify once you bake it.
