Can this be frozen? Can you use frozen peaches to make this? Thank you! Love everything peach!
Yes, just use an airtight container.
Do you leave the skin on, or are the slices peeled?
I left the skins on.
Try making this in the microwave?
No I haven't. I'd be careful and do it in small increments so it doesn't boil over.
Yummy!!! I decided not to strain it at the end. I'm using it for pancakes, so..peach chunks in my syrup..yummmmmm :). Thanks for this recipe!
On pancakes! I love that idea!
Have you made this without sugar?
No I haven't as sugar/sweetening in a concentrated form is the goal with this recipe. Otherwise it will be just water and peaches. You might try honey, or maybe even Swerve, or other 1:1 ratio sweetener if you are trying to avoid sugar. For artificial sweeteners and honey, I wouldn't add until after you have cooked the peaches and they cool down quite a bit.
Yum, this is so good in alcoholic beverages!
It is! I use it in my Fancy Peach Margarita, and in prosecco!
