July 26, 2018 This week’s farm veggie recipe idea:
Included in box: peaches
“When peaches are ripe and in abundance, there is nothing easier that a fresh peach compote to turn them into a healthy dessert! This is a classic French recipe that is perfect for warm summer evenings.
This Peach Compote is a classic French recipe that is absolutely perfect for using juicy, overripe summer peaches. It takes just a few seconds to prepare, and while you’re eating dinner the stove works its magic giving you a perfectly healthy summer dessert with hardly any effort at all.
Drizzled with honey and a pinch of cinnamon – your family will never notice how healthy this delicious, simple dessert is!” Lavende & Lemonade
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Optional Topping: Macadamia Baking Pieces
Serve with Vanilla Yogurt
Peel the peaches if you prefer, and roughly dice them into 1 inch pieces.
Mix the peaches together with the sugar in a saucepan. Let them simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, or until the peaches are nice and tender. That’s it!
I like to serve the compote warm – poured over yogurt. The balance of the sweet, juicy peaches and the tart, creamy plain yogurt is amazing! Drizzle it with honey and dust with a little cinnamon and you have a simple, healthy home-run dessert!
If you’re making this for a more formal occasion, its best to peel the peaches. But for a casual weeknight dessert that takes just a few seconds prep time, I like to leave the peels on. (with organic peaches, of course!)
