The uses for fresh peach sauce are endless. It makes a great topping over ice cream and cake, delicious yogurt parfait, frozen popsicle, or Peach Bellini.
This Homemade Fresh Peach Sauce is so versatile and can be served so many ways. Making fruit sauces are a great way to enjoy fresh fruit flavor while knowing exactly what the ingredients are.
I grew up in an agricultural community where we enjoyed fresh summer and fall produce.
We shared it, ate it fresh, or canned it for a rainy day. I rely on farmers’ markets or grocery stores for my produce now but regardless of where it comes from, one thing remains the same, I don’t want to waste it.
So when I had several peaches that were getting beyond their prime I decided to whip up some peach sauce.
What I couldn’t use right away I put in the freezer for another day.
When my children were younger one of their favorite treats was homemade applesauce. I usually made it on cold days and served it with soup, stew, or chili.
It was just one of those combinations that went well together. I’d cook up a large batch and break it down into smaller containers and pop into the freezer.
This is exactly what I did with my homemade peach sauce.
Fresh Peach Sauce Ingredients
What I love about fruit sauce is the minimal ingredients.
- Fresh Peaches – The type of peaches doesn’t matter.
- Sugar – White sugar is what I used. You can replace 1/4 cup of the white sugar with brown sugar. It’s delicious!
Sprinkling this fresh fruit sauce with a little cinnamon adds a warm touch.
This recipe can be increased or decreased according to the number of peaches you have. I wouldn’t use more lemon than what this recipe calls for unless you are doubling it.
Just a few more peaches doesn’t warrant additional lemon juice.
