Port Parfait with Oranges
Even if you don't like sweet wine, this Port reduction sauce is amazing with ice cream.
2 cups Port wine
Juice of 1/2 orange
1 1/2 oranges, peeled and diced
1 pint good French vanilla ice cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
Unsweetened chocolate, grated for garnish
In a medium saucepan, bring Port to a boil and reduce heat to medium. Simmer 20 - 25 minutes until reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in orange juice. Allow to cool (sauce will thicken as it cools).
Place two scoops of ice cream in a parfait (or other) glass. Drizzle about a tablespoon or Port sauce over, then a sprinkling of oranges. Repeat. Top with a mound of unsweetened whipped cream, some grated chocolate and a few orange pieces. Serves 2.
