Fresh Peach Sauce

With our CSA we usually get several bags of fresh South Carolina peaches.  We got so many that I had to find something to do with them before they started to rot.  I made a peach cobbler with some of them but was running out of room to store what was left.  I decided to try out a fresh peach sauce to have with waffles and pancakes.

4 fresh peaches
1/2 cup water
3 Tabelspoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
a dash cornstarch ( or about a 1/4 teaspoon)
Aren't those pretty?

Peel and chop the peaches into medium size pieces. Put in a saucepan with the water and sugar and bring to a boil.

Turn the heat down and let simmer on low until the peaches start to soften. Add the cinnamon and vanilla, stir well, and let cook on very low heat.

About 10 minutes before you are ready to serve them, stir in the cornstarch.

You don't need a lot- just enough to slightly thicken the sauce. Stir well being careful not to let it burn.

We like to eat ours on Belgian Waffles, Pancakes, or Ice Cream, (Dairy Free of course!)

What do you do with your extra summer time peaches?
