Creating This Peach Syrup Recipe

I cheer when it’s finally peach season again. I stalk the farm stands starting mid-July on the off chance there are early peaches available for me to buy. It feels like winning the lottery when I find those early peaches. And then in a few weeks we are overloaded with peaches at every corner, and I am beyond happy.

I started making peach syrup awhile back as a way to use up any extra ripe peaches I had on hand — I don’t want a single one to go to waste! This peach syrup is nice and sweet with a touch of cinnamon, vanilla, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice to brighten it up.

How to Make Peach Syrup

Add all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cook until syrupy, about 20 to 30 minutes.

Can I Use Frozen Peaches?

Most likely, yes. But fresh peaches are naturally much sweeter and will give you the best flavor.

Tips for Making Peach Syrup

You can puree the peaches or keep it a little chunky. Totally up to you on that one. We like ours to have some bigger pieces of peaches to bit into. Think of it like a very thin homemade jam.

I like to add both vanilla and almond extract to this peach syrup, but you can omit the almond extract if desired. It just adds an extra layer of flavor and a hint of nuttiness.

My family prefers eating this peach syrup warm, but you can also enjoy it cold. When reheating the syrup, I recommend doing so in a saucepan and not reheating the entire jar. That way you’re not reheating all the syrup over and over again.
