This thick syrup is amazing poured over pancakes, on top of ice cream or eaten by the spoonful! It's easy to make too! Perfect way to use up fresh peaches. Plus you can freeze it!
Peal one of the peaches and smash it up. You can use a potato masher or a pastry cutter or a fork. Add it to a medium-sized pot. Add the sugar and corn starch and stir to combine. Cook over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Allow the mixture to boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Wait until it doesn't look "cloudy" anymore. Set the pan aside to cool for a few minutes.
Peel the remaining 3 peaches and chopped them up into bite-sized peaches. Add the butter and chopped peaches to the cooked mixture and stir until the butter is melted. Stir in the vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. If you want the syrup smooth, use an immersion blender (or transfer to a blender) and blend in batches till smooth. I love it with the chunks of peach.
Enjoy over pancakes, waffles, inside crepes, over ice cream...
Store in the fridge or freeze for up to 3 months.
