I love peaches so muuuuuch~! Today I’d like to present you this special and simple Hungarian dessert, poached peaches or as the Hungarian call it, barack kompót. You can serve it with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or even both! It’s all up to your taste and fantasy~
Ingredients (for 6 servings):
- 6 large firm-ripe freestone peaches, peeled, halved and pitted
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 lemon slices
- In a large saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes until thick and syrupy.
- Add cinnamon, lemon and peach halves. Cover and cook over low heat for 8 minutes. Remove from heat and let peaches cool in syrup, turning occasionally.
- When cool, refrigerate. Serve in chilled bowls.
