Actually this would be great over many kinds of sweet treats.

It would also be an awesome accompaniment to a spice-rubbed pork recipe or grilled chicken pieces.

The sweet and the savory play so well together!

Georgia Peaches

When you are in Georgia in July, (right in the middle of the peach season) you have to bring home peaches. The same place I got them last year was double the price. I need to find a new place to buy them 🙂 Next time I’m thinking the grocery stores or the farmer’s market would be a better option than a roadside stand.

Last year, I made a peach crumble that was delicious. You can find the recipe HERE.

“A Georgia peach, a real Georgia peach, a backyard great-grandmother’s orchard peach, is as thickly furred as a sweater, and so fluent and sweet that once you bite through the flannel, it brings tears to your eyes.”

Creating an Easy Fresh Peach Sauce Recipe

Because I was sick all week, when I was able to cook I had some very ripe peaches on my hands. This recipe was a great way to use the peaches and create something that pared well with both dinner and dessert.

While pondering what I could make with these peaches, I took a bite out of one of these juicy peaches. It really is so different from the hard peaches we usually find in Illinois. 

Here is the super easy recipe that I created. It makes the best fresh fruit sauce with very simple ingredients.

  • You can serve this over fruit, sponge cake, ice cream or what ever sounds yummy to you. This sauce can be used warm, room temperature or even cold.
  • Save left over in airtight container in refrigerator. Use within 2-3 days.


I just used a dash of cinnamon because I’m not a big fan, however I will admit it does add something special. You could also add nutmeg in addition or instead of the cinnamon.
I used Truvia instead of sugar to reduce the calories.
