Deliciously refreshing peach simple syrup made with just three simple ingredients, and perfect for iced tea, ice cream, waffles, pancakes and more!
If you haven’t tried peach simple syrup, you are missing out on one of the most delicious summer treats.
Spring and early summer is peach season here in Arizona. Every year we overload the kitchen counter with 15-20 pounds of peaches that we use for goodies galore.
Oh the joy and beauty of ripe, juicy peaches! If you aren’t near an orchard to pick your own, grab a few pounds at your local marked to make this simple syrup. A few pounds of peaches, water and sugar is all it takes to create a delicious treat that everyone in your family will enjoy.
Peach Simple Syrup
Making your own simple syrup is one of the best kept secrets. Use it liberally on ice cream, waffles, pancakes, in your iced tea, or cocktails. Or combine it with club soda for a delicious summer treat.
Start by combining basic water and sugar at a 1:1 ratio.
Simple syrup can be made a few different ways. Basic simple syrup is made with equal parts of sugar and water. A rich simple syrup is extra sweet though with a 2:1 sugar to water ratio, giving room for you to use even less (and making it last longer!)
Once done simmering, cool and pour into jars. Then refrigerate to use right away. Or opt to gift simple syrup to family and friends – these slim glass bottles are perfect for bottling and gifting.
