Here’s an easy recipe that preserves those delicious peaches without most of the work. The maple syrup only makes them more delicious!
Peach Slices with Maple Syrup
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons sherry or amaretto, optional
6 large peaches, peeled and sliced
Combine syrup and sugar in a 4 cup microwavable cup. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Stir in sherry or amaretto, if using.
Add peach slices, cover and microwave until mixture begins to boil, about 5 minutes. Keep a close eye on it because it can easily boil over. Cool, stirring occasionally.
Pack into clean plastic containers to within 1/2 inch of the rim. Cover tightly. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for longer storage.
Absolutely divine on vanilla ice cream. Makes about 3 cups.
