Peach Sauce – Barefeet in the Kitchen

You need just three ingredients to make this homemade peach sauce. The deliciousness begins with ripe, juicy, peaches. When the peaches grow fragrant and soften, that’s the signal that it is time to start making our favorite peach recipes.

Peach Sauce

Gather your peaches, add a sprinkling of sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and you’ll have everything you need to make this mouthwatering peach sauce.

Soon, you’ll be pouring it over ice cream, stirring it into yogurt and oatmeal, topping pancakes and waffles, spooning it over English muffins, making Bostock with it, and trying to resist eating it by the spoonful. (Not that I know anything about that.)

Peach jams, syrups, and sauces capture the essence of summer in every spoonful. There’s nothing better than opening a jar filled with summer peach flavor in the middle of winter

This perfectly sweetened and wonderfully spiced Homemade Peach Jam has been a staple in our home for about 15 years. And while we’re talking about jam, have you tasted Habanero Peach Jam? There is really nothing else like it. The balance of sweet and spice is unforgettable.

Sweet Slow Cooker Bourbon Peaches in a light sauce made with a sprinkling of brown sugar, cinnamon, and a splash of bourbon are the perfect way to brighten your holiday dessert table.

This sweet and savory Tangy Peach Barbecue Sauce adds flavor to any dinner dish and it’s especially good on pork chops and pulled pork sandwiches.

Can You Eat Peach Skin?

Yes! You absolutely CAN eat the skin of a peach. It is entirely up to you whether or not you choose to peel the peaches for this sauce. For years, I peeled peaches for every dessert. One day, I was short on time and skipped it, and in the years since, I’ve never looked back.

Peach skin is soft enough that it almost melts into the peaches as they cook. I can hardly tell a difference and I doubt I’ll ever again peel the peaches for a dessert.

Anything that saves me a few minutes of preparation time on my way to enjoying my favorite fruit desserts is a win as far as I’m concerned.

Peach Sauce Recipe

Combine the peaches, sugar, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously while the sugar melts and the mixture comes to a boil.

Continue cooking for about 6-8 minutes, until the peaches are soft. Use a wooden spoon or potato masher to smash the fruit a bit as it is cooking.

Cool completely before transferring the sauce to an airtight container and storing it in the refrigerator.

Peach Sauce for Ice Cream

Homemade peach sauce spooned over creamy ice cream creates a symphony of flavors. Succulent ripe peaches offer a juicy, sun-kissed sweetness, perfectly balanced by a hint of tang from a touch of lemon juice.

A bit of sugar enhances the fruit’s natural richness, creating a heavenly topping that transforms each icy spoonful into a delectable, harmonious treat. Seriously, my friends, peach sauce for ice cream? The combination really is THAT amazing.
