Easy Peach Topping

My family loves peaches. We love fresh the very best. However, if we can’t have fresh, canned is the next best thing. I have a delicious recipe for a fresh peach topping for waffles, desserts, and etc. that we all love. However, I decided I needed to have an easy peach topping version that uses canned peaches for when all those fresh peaches are gone.

This easy peach topping is the recipe I came up with that uses peaches canned in juice. It even utilizes the juice in the recipe too. This just helps to amp up the peach flavor.

You are going to drain those canned peaches reserving the juice. Then you will need to cut those peaches up into bit sized pieces. Then you will add the peaches with 2 cups of juice to a sauce an. If you don’t have a full 2 cups of juice you can just add in enough water to make it two cups.

Next you will add in some sugar. corn starch, cinnamon, and vanilla. Cinnamon pairs so well with peaches. All that is left to do is bring the mixture to a boil for a few minutes until it thickens. I allow the syrup to cool slightly before using.

  1. Made this today. It turned out pretty good. I was able to use 2 cups of juice. I made it as the recipe stated however at first I forgot to add the vanilla and tasted it that way. It was good then I added the vanilla and taste tested again. I think next time I would leave the vanilla out or maybe try some almond extract. It was easy to make. The sauce was sweet and the peaches had a little tartness. The true test will be tonight as we are going to try it on top of cheesecake.
