Fresh Peach Sauce

Patricia Reitz

Peach season has finally arrived in Virginia and we've been enjoying them in so many ways. Today I made a quick peach sauce to serve with my Vanilla Dutch Baby (click here for step-by-step photos and recipe).  Mmmm, it was so good.  The sauce cooks in less than 2 minutes - everybody has 2 minutes, right?  Great on ice cream or pancakes too.

Start by slicing or dicing one ripe peach with a really sharp paring knife.  The peaches I had in my kitchen today were white peaches so I left skin on for color, but you can certainly peel your peach if you want to.  Place the peach in a good quality, heavy-bottom pan.

Stirring constantly, heat the mixture until it boils; boil for one full minute.  Remove from heat and stir in 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract (use the good stuff).  You can leave the almond extract out if you don't care for it, but I love it and think the two flavors go very well together.

That's it - it's ready to eat.  Wish you could taste it, but you're not here so I guess you'll have to make some for yourself.  Enjoy!
