A gelée—in essence, a sauce made from liquid, sugar, and gelatin—is summer dessert at its most refreshing. In this recipe, which first appeared in our June/July 2014 issue with Sophie Brickman's story "The Feast of Life," ripe peaches are suspended in a light, fruity gelée flavored with semisweet fizzy moscato wine. The key to this elegant sweet is letting the gelatin set up before pouring the mixture into a mold.
