Peach Sauce over Vanilla Ice Cream

Peach Sauce over Vanilla Ice Cream

You just haven't had vanilla ice cream until you've tried it with this homemade peach sauce!

After cooking the turkey breast roast with peaches, making peach jam, and barbecuing peaches, I decided to make a quick sauce using the remaining 4 peaches that were getting too soft to eat as a whole. 


Oh, and that peach half you see in the bowl?  Well, I just cut a few whole peaches in half, got rid of their seed, placed them on a tray lined with parchment paper and froze them for a couple of hours.  ~ A real treat to compliment the ice cream!

Ingredients for Peach Sauce:
4 peaches (remove skin and pits)
2 heaping tbsp sugar  (you could add more if you wish)

Method:
1.  Remove skin and pits from the peaches.
2.  Cut peaches into small pieces.
3.  In a saucepan, combine pieces of peaches with sugar and stir constantly.
4.  Simmer until thickens.  (Not quite as this as jam).
5.  Serve warm over a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream.
