Peach Sauce


Ingredient Line: 
2 cups frozen sliced peaches
Ingredient Line: 
1½ cups peach nectar
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup orange juice
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup sugar

Ingredient Set Name: 

Cornmeal Waffles


Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup all-purpose flour

½ cup yellow cornmeal

3 Tbs. sugar
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. baking powder

1. To make Peach Sauce: Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer 20 to 25 minutes, or until peaches are very tender and sauce is syrupy. Break up peaches with spoon to make sauce chunky. Transfer to bowl.

Comments on this Recipe

The flavor was delicious, but even in a non-sick waffle iron with canola cooking spray, the waffles stuck a bit.
