French Peach Compote

Fresh Peach Compote: Recipe from Lavende & Lemonade


When peaches are ripe and in abundance, there is nothing easier that a fresh peach compote to turn them into a healthy dessert!  This is a classic French recipe that is perfect for warm summer evenings.

This Peach Compote is a classic French recipe that is absolutely perfect for using juicy, overripe summer peaches.  Juicy, refreshing, and nutritious - its truly a perfect summertime dessert!

This recipe literally takes just a few seconds to prepare. Pull it together, sit back and relax!  While you're eating dinner the stove works its magic giving you a perfectly healthy summer dessert with hardly any effort at all.


To keep it extra simple, I like to select organic peaches and keep the peach skins on my slices.  It knocks so much time off preparation and adds extra nutrients.  If you're making this for a more formal occasion, its best to peel the peaches for a more refined appearance and texture.  But, for a casual weeknight dessert that takes just a few seconds prep time, I like to leave the peels on. (with organic peaches, of course!)  Bonus, the peels add extra nutrients and healthy fiber that's so good for us like this Reader's Digest article discusses.

Peaches themselves are such a boost to our bodies, with all their antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, prebiotics, and natural anti-microbial properties!  What a sweet little power treat to enjoy!  Health Magazine even says they may help with eyesight, weight control and cancer risk and brain health. 

Drizzled with honey and a pinch of cinnamon - your family will never notice how healthy this delicious, simple dessert is!

French Peach Compote


INGREDIENTS:

  • 3-5 ripe peaches, roughly diced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

DIRECTIONS:

1) Peel the peaches if you prefer, and roughly dice them into 1 inch pieces.

2) Mix the peaches together with the sugar in a saucepan.  Let them simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, or until the peaches are nice and tender.  


That's it! 

This dessert really is so simple to make.  Now you can sit back to relax and enjoy the summer sounds of crickets chirping and children playing outdoors while you indulge. 

I like to serve the compote warm - poured over yogurt.  The balance of the sweet, juicy peaches and the tart, creamy plain yogurt is amazing!  Drizzle it with honey and dust with a little cinnamon and you have a simple, healthy home-run dessert!
