Maple-Peach Ice Cream Topping


This simple, quick peach sauce is great for ice cream but tastes equally good on french toast, waffles, or granola. To peel or not to peel, the choice is yours! I left the peel on as it helps to keep the peaches intact.

  • 3 ripe peaches

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • ½ cup real maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg


  1. Cut each peach in half, remove pit, and cut each half into 6 slices.

  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until slightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Place peach slices into the butter, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 3 minutes, turning carefully. Add maple syrup, lemon zest, and nutmeg to the pot and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes.

  3. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Cook's Note:

I prefer to use organic peaches.
