This special recipe comes from my beautiful Mother-in-Law. This incredibly strong woman has been eating healthy before it was a trend and you can tell. She has aged incredibly! I am determined to learn all her secrets. When I first met Ben 15 years ago, she taught me how to make my own Kefir, Kombucha and Matcha Latte before it was a fad. I trust everything she shares about health and wellness. She knows the benefits of every root, herb, weed, and flower. She has helped me learn so much and I value every recipe she shares as I know it’s going to be beneficial and healthy for my boys.
This summer I was looking for a sweet but gluten-free dessert to share with friends after hosting dinner. Of course, she came up with a wonderful idea that turned out to be a huge hit with everyone, including the kids.
Peaches are in season and so it was the perfect time to grab some sweet peaches and give her idea a go. These delicious warm peaches are sure to be a hit. You can add less honey if you don’t want them to be too sweet! I love honey and we are so lucky we can use my Mother-in-laws homemade honey from her bees. The benefits of local raw honey are amazing, so I don’t mind the extra sweetness, neither do my boys!
You can make as many peaches as you like. I usually make one peach per person. So usually for my little family, I will need five peachers to make five servings. When you boil the peaches make sure to wait till the water is boiling and only leave them in there for 2 min. Let them cool. I sometimes will run them under cool water if I am a little rushed. The skin will easily peel off or you can use a paring knife to help. I usually can get them off using my hands.
- 5 peaches (or more if needed!)
- Tablespoon of honey
- Tablespoon of Maple Syrup (not necessary but we love the flavor it adds)
- Hemp seeds or Granola…whatever topping you like to add on top if you like
- Whipped cream
Bing a pot of water to boil (enough to cover the peaches). Please peaches in boiling water for 2 minutes. Remove from boiling water and peel the skin off peaches. Cut the peaches into halves.
Place the peaches in a cast iron (or any pan) flat side down on medium. Add your tablespoon of honey and tablespoon of maple syrup. Let them cool on medium/low for four to five minutes.
Remove, plate, drizzle with the honey and syrup sauce from pan. Sprinkle with granola or hemp seeds. Add a dollop of whip cream. serve and enjoy.
You can put these to cool if you like in the fridge, plated with just the syrup and honey. But I like to serve mine warm especially on a cool summer night or fall evening.
