Peach Sauce

Whenever we have a lot of fresh peaches, they’re on sale at the market, or I have some frozen ones that need to be used up, we make a batch of peach sauce.

The beauty of this recipe is that you just have to dice the fruit, simmer it, and blend it into a delicious puree. No peeling or blanching the fruit required!
