While peaches are still plentiful at the market, buy a batch and make this up. It is soooo yummy and it a real treat.
- 4 peaches
- 1/4 cup sugar
- pinch of allspice
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 3/4 cup water
Peel the peaches and slice each one, putting them and all the other ingredients in a saucepan. Bring this to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 8 minutes.
You now have a choice…mash it up so you have pieces of peaches, or strain it. I tried straining it and gave up after a few minutes. Put it all back together and it is perfect that way.
This makes a small amount so you can double it or even triple it.
