I grew up with a peach orchard in my backyard so I absolutely love fresh peaches. This is a delicious and easy syrup recipe. You can pour this syrup over ice cream, pancakes, or anything that strikes your fancy. It is especially good over Honey Whole Wheat Pancakes. (You can find that recipe here.)
Honey Peach Syrup
2 ½ cups peaches, fresh or frozen
¼ cup honey
½ tablespoon lemon juice
Peel peaches and dice. Put peaches in a medium saucepan and stir in honey and lemon juice. Heat on the stove at medium high. Mash ingredients together with a potato masher while heating.
Once the peaches are slightly broken down and well blended with the honey, bring the mixture to a boil then remove from stove. Transfer mixture to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into a clean saucepan. Taste the syrup, and add honey if you want it sweeter. Heat over medium-low heat to a low boil, boiling until the mixture reaches syrup stage, stirring frequently so it doesn’t burn on the bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. The mixture will start to look slightly translucent. Serve warm over honey whole-wheat pancakes, waffles, or ice cream. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
