Thought I might share this quicky recipe to jazz up peaches, even when it’s not been a great harvest.
Either stove top (as I did) or microwave (use glass or plastic)
I’ve done this with unripe peaches, mushy peaches (cut off the bad spots), wrinkled peaches (i.e., getting dried out)
- Slice your peaches as you choose
- Put in a bowl or pan, depending on where you’re cooking them
- Add ginger (I used powdered, but freshly grated or candied would also work) to taste
- I don’t add sugar, as a rule, but you add it you like it
For stove top method, add a bit of water so peaches don’t stick
Let the peaches cook & the water mostly boil away, until there’s thick syrup left
Either eat right away, or…
Allow to cool before placing in storage container & refrigerating
This can also be used as the filling for a pie or with a cobbler topping, but you still need to pre-cook the peach mixture. You’re on your own for those recipes, as I don’t care for crusts.
