  • 2 cups frozen sliced peaches
  • 11/2 cups peach nectar
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar

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.
