Peach season is in full swing, and oh how I wish it were here to stay forever! The brutally hot months seem a bit more tolerable when biting into the juicy and luscious quintessential summer food. I am blessed to live just a couple of hours away from a town called Fredericksburg, Texas, which is known for its peach orchards, among many other things. Come summer, this quaint German town’s main attraction is peach picking, and there will definitely be lines at the orchards. The “Closed/Sold Out” signs are sure to make an appearance sooner rather than later, so getting an early start on the day is worth a little loss of sleep. Having spent many years in Georgia, I know a thing or two about peaches, but you won’t ever see me in the debate about which state has the best peaches. To each his own!
While peaches are perfect simply as is, when you realize some are ripening at a much faster rate than you can consume them, consider making this peach compote. Using overripe peaches also allows for fewer sweeteners to be added. In this case, all that was needed was a little maple syrup. Simply stir all the ingredients together in a saucepan, and in less than 10 minutes you’ve got yourself a scrumptious topping or sauce to spoon on top of overnight oats, pancakes, waffles, ice cream … you name it!
Peach Compote Overnight Oats
Serves 1 (4 servings for peach compote)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ease of preparation: Easy
1/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup dairy or nondairy milk
1/3 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon chia seeds
2 ripe medium peaches, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons water
Shredded coconut flakes
A drizzle of maple syrup
Add the oats, milk, yogurt and chia seeds to a pint-sized Mason jar or other container and give them a good stir. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
Combine the rest of the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer (stirring occasionally) until maple syrup begins to caramelize and the mixture thickens, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Serve 2 tablespoons of peach compote on top of the oats mixture and add toppings of choice. Store the remaining compote in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week.
