  • 1 cup fruity red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 3/4 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 3 cups frozen peaches, unthawed
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries, unthawed
  • 1 cup frozen blackberries, unthawed
  • 1 navel orange, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds


  1. In a small saucepan, combine red wine, brown sugar, and star anise and bring to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes (you should have 1 cup).

  2. Arrange fruit in a 1 1/2-quart shallow dish. Discard star anise from wine mixture, then pour over fruit. Let sit at room temperature until fruit is thawed, about 1 hour.
