Cantaloupe Peach Soup (P, TNT)
Source: Adapted from "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest," by Mollie Katzen with a lot of my own.
Serves: 4

6 medium sized ripe peaches
1/4 cup dry white wine
6 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (equivalent: juice of one large juicy lemon)
1 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
1 medium-sized (5" diameter) cantaloupe
1 cup orange juice

Peel pit and slice the peaches. Place them in a heavy saucepan with everything except the cantaloupe and orange juice. Heat the peach mixture to a boil, lower to a simmer, cover, and let it stew for 10 minutes. Let it cool to room temperature.

Using a blender or a food processor puree the peach mixture with all its liquid. Return the puree to a serving bowl.

Chop approximately 3/4 the cantaloupe (minus skins and seeds) and puree it in the orange juice until smooth. Add it to the peach puree. Mince the remaining melon, and add these pieces unpureed. Cover and chill. Serve very cold.
