Peach Compote

Peach Compote

This peach compote is easy to make. It's delicious even though it's reduced sugar.

Ingredients: 2 servings

White peaches
● Water
250-300 ml
● Granulated sugar
4-5 tablespoons
● White wine
3 tablespoons
● Lemon juice
1 tablespoon


1. Cut the peaches in half, peel, and remove the pits. Put the ● ingredients into a pot and dissolve the sugar.
2. Add the peaches and cook over medium heat. When it comes to a boil, turn the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes (turn the peaches halfway through cooking).
3. Let the peaches from Step 2 sit in the pot until they cool off. Then put them in a container and refrigerate.
4. If you are making compote with just 1 peach, add 200 ml of water, 2 tablespoons of white wine, 3 - 4 tablespoons of sugar, and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and simmer. There won't be enough of the simmering liquid, so tip the pot while it's simmering to keep the peach steeped in flavor.
5. If you want to give it a deep pink color, add the peach peels to the pot of simmering liquid (buy the reddest peaches you can find for this).
6. Strain the simmering liquid with a tea strainer before refrigerating. Wait for at least half a day before eating.

Story Behind this Recipe

I used some bruised peaches to make compote. You can eat it plain, but I also recommend using it to make tarts or jelly. Here are the peach compote pieces with yogurt in a different dessert recipe (Recipe ID: 2313752).
