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.Print
- 1 (29 oz) can of peaches packed in juice
- 3 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Drain peaches, but reserve juice and set aside. Just peach slices into bite sized pieces. I cut each slice into thirds.
- Add 2 cup of juice (add water if needed to make 2 cups) to a sauce pan and whisk in the cornstarch. Add in the sugar,cinnamon, vanilla, and diced peaches and stir together.
- Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for a few minutes until thickened. Allow to cool and serve over waffles, pancakes, desserts, etc. Makes 3 cups.
