This winter, try making homemade apple-peach sauce. This sauce is delicious, and smells wonderful while simmering on the stove top.
Cook up a serving for yourself, or a larger batch to divide between small canning jars for use when packing lunches for work or school.
This recipes serves 3-5, depending on the size of the fruits used.
Rinse the apples and peaches well, wiping dry with a dish towel.
Peel and core the fruits.
Chop the apples and peaches. The smaller the pieces you cut, the less time the sauce will take to cook.
Put the cut pieces of apples and peaches into a saucepan and cover with water. Use just enough water to barely cover the fruit, but be prepared to add more if needed before the fruit is cooked down.
Stir often while cooking over medium heat, until there are small pieces of fruit left but there is also plenty of sauce. Or, cook down until there are no chunks left, depending on your preferences.
Enjoy warm, or allow to cool.
Use cinnamon and nutmeg to add additional flavor to the apple-peach sauce.
Serve hot over vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
Make a syrup for pancakes or waffles by adding three to five tablespoons of maple syrup to the sauce. Top with a few slices of fresh fruit.
