Sliced Peaches in a Honey Glaze

on June 3, 2013

You all should know that it was my friend Terri who convinced me to post this recipe. I made it the first time a few nights ago and Jene was kinda meh about it. I usually don’t post stuff unless he really likes it and would want to eat it again.

However, Terri mentioned that she wished she could find something sweet to eat that wasn’t full of sugar and other bad stuff. So I told her about this. She made it that very night and raved about it to me the next day. So on her word that’s it’s excellent, here it is!

Recipe

16 oz frozen peach slices

1 TB butter

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of ground cloves

1 TB mild honey (it really does need to be mild so it doesn’t over whelm the flavor of the peaches)

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the peaches and saute until they’re mostly thawed. Add the cinnamon and cloves, stir them in. Then add the honey. Continue sauteing until the honey forms a nice glaze.

Tah dah! A fix for your sweet cravings that isn’t all that bad for you.

I do want to add a couple of notes. Since it’s coming onto stone fruit season, you can use fresh peaches or even nectarines, just make sure they’re still firm. They also won’t take as long to cook because you’re not thawing them.

The second note is this… a splash of Elderberry Liquor is a nice touch too. Splash it in and then go ahead and flambe it to remove the alcohol flavor. I don’t consider it vital to the recipe but I happen to really like the stuff lol.

Oh yes… you can also use them to top ice cream, cakes and even brownies. I just like to eat them out of the bowl lol.
