Here's the recipe I made:
Mangoes & Peaches in Port Wine Syrup
by Mary Angela Morgan
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup Port wine
2 Tablespoons lemon zest
1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped
4 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
The combination of the lemon zest and the Port wine make this recipe. The flavor is bright and sophisticated at the same time. Port wine has not been on my radar since I caught my grandmother taking a surreptitious swig of it in the pantry once. She loved her Port... perhaps a bit too much. I've started sneaking it into my cobbler now too (just a Tablespoon) for that extra little "je ne sais quois".
In a medium sauce pan stir sugar, water, and Port wine over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add lemon zest (don't use that dry stuff!); bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer uncovered 8 t0 10 minutes or until reduced to a medium thick syrup.
