still makes no sense. You see some fruit things sold in a jar and it is called compote. To me if it is dessert it is compote, if it is food then it is soup/gaspacho. No big deal.

This might not be correct terminology, but I remember my grandma and her friends putting fruit in crocks with sugar so it fermented, and sharing it with others, who added their own fruit to the starter. They called it fruit compote, and served it over ice cream. As I recall, I didn't care for the stuff, but it was always around! It kept growing out of the crock.

I wonder if the difference might be that compote is served over stuff, and soup stands alone.

Think cold Borscht or Vichyssoise. You've had tomato soup. Tomato is actually a fruit. (BTW you can have cold tomato soup w/ vodka & topped w/ scallops or cold shrimp.) Just an example.

You can have anything with vodka. As long as there is enough of it, (which really is never enough) cold, or hot. Tomatoes though technically fruit have been treated as vegetable for a very long time. And to be honest with you I would only be able to eat cold tomato soup with vodka, and there better be a lot of vodka too, because to me cold tomato soup is extremely disgusting thing.

And that would be a Bloody Mary!

Anyway, I froze some peaches whole, as DH overbought. Am hoping the recipe will work with frozen peaches?

I don't see why not. It is soup you know and frozen works just fine.

Kades: How is your Neck today ?

Hope that you are having a speedy recovery ...

I had quite a few fresh Greek peaches left over, and thus, prepared a lovely sautéed monkfish with evoo, leek, zucchini, lemon, Muscatel semi sweet white wine, peaches & a touch of mint ...

This recipe was posted in February where I had prepared it with Scorpio Fish ( cabracho in Spanish ) which is a bright coral Red armored as in The Knights in shining armor, fish that is said to be destructive to coral reefs.

However, this fish is common in Mediterranean waters in January and February and is primarily used to prepare Terrines with it in Spain; however, the flesh is white and stunning ...

Thanks again for your Peach Gazpacho and feel better !

Margaux.

Bellini Cocktail: from Harry´s Bar - Venecia

Firstly, let us not confuse a famous long standing bar in Venecia with any members who happen to have been named with the same 1st name on D.C.

A bellini is a chilled Prosecco white sparkling wine with lemon juice, fresh peach juice and sugar ... it is quite famous throughout Veneto ...

Here is the recipe for the cocktail ...

Harry´s Bar, In Venice: Cocktail Bellini ...

1.5 pounds very ripe peaches peeled and chopped finely
2 tblsps. fresh lemon juice
1 tblsp. sugar
750 ml. Bottle Prosecco DOC designation Veneto Sparkling white wine

Combine all in a blender with crushed ice and serve in large stemware glass ...

Enjoy.
Margi.
