Peach Sauce

This is nothing orginal, but Craig and I got an idea.  We had lots and lots of peaches on our tree and what is quick and easy to do with all of them.  We had made this delicous Strawberry Sauce from Our Best Bites and loved it.  The two ideas clicked and we made peach sauce.

4 cups of peaches (peeled and pitted and worms/bugs/bird bites removed
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Peeled and pit the peaches (sorry - I did not count how many) to make 4 cups of peaches.  I only halved my peaches because you blend them later.  Put into a large saucepan, add 1 cup of sugar. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes to dissolve the sugar.  You can break up your peaches more while you stir them.  Remove from heat and add the almond and vanilla extract.  Stir in extract.  Let cool and then pour into your blender and blend.  It only takes about 30 seconds to blend until there are no chunks.  Serve/save in fridge or freezer until you want to use.  (We put half in the freezer for later)

Use on toast instead of jam, use for a pancake/waffle syrup, use over ice cream, eat straight, dip cream puffs into (this was the first reason for making it because we had 5 hungry boys over and cream puffs left over from Aimee's reception a year ago that had been sitting in the freezer)

I think this was delicious.  I hope you enjoy it too.

  1. Marie, Rogers sister, made apricot jam that for some reason didn't set so instead it turned out to be syrup. Still very Yummy on the wheat pancakes his other sister, Corinne, made.
