Total time 30 mins

The warm heat of ginger perfectly complements sweet peaches in this thick fruit sauce that's delicious on yogurt, ice cream or even on a piece of toast.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (2 cups), or frozen sliced peaches, thawed
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablepoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon water

How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the water.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the peaches with the granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt and orange juice and bring to a simmer over moderate heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cook for 5 minutes,stirring occasionally. Add the ginger and cinnamon and simmer for 2 minutes longer. Add the dissolved cornstarch and simmer until the liquid is slightly thickened, about 30 seconds.

  3. Using an immersion blender, gently pulse until a chunky sauce forms. Serve chilled.
