Peach Compote with Cream and Almonds: Quick and Tasty

By Jeanie Rose | Peaches Plums Apricots

Peach Compote at FreshBitesDaily.comWhen ripe, densely flavored fruit is available, take the opportunity to serve it fresh with a few adornments. This peach compote dish should inspire your creativity. With peaches I prefer the late season selections. They have rich flavor, sturdy texture, and usually are freestone. Here in Central California, they are available at every fruit stand and in most backyards. This is a simple way to enjoy their full flavor and their antioxidant goodness.

The almond liqueur is optional, but highly recommended.

Serves: # 4

Peach Compote Ingredients

  • 4 peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 4 tablespoon almond liqueur
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup coarsely chopped and roasted almonds

Peach Compote Steps

  1. Place the peach slices in individual dessert dishes, the more beautiful, the better.
  2. Sprinkle a tablespoon of liquor over each peach portion and allow to sit for a few minutes for the flavors to blend.
  3. Drizzle the cream over the peaches and sprinkle on the toasted almonds.

My mouth is watering – and craving peaches and cream now. This recipe sounds so flavorful. I wait all year for peaches to be in season. They’re well worth the wait.

Thanks for sharing with Sweets This Week.
