This peach sauce is a favorite over ice cream, cake, pancakes, waffles. If you do not want to use the brandy, peach or apricot nectar is a good substitute. Plain brandy can also be substituted if desired.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the water, brandy, preserves, sugar, and salt in a medium heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium, add the peaches and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the peaches are tender.
  4. Remove the peaches from the pan with a slotted spoon and place in a serving bowl.
  5. Cook the syrup until very thick- about ten minutes.
  6. Toss with the peaches and vanilla.
  7. The sauce can be served immediately, or can be served at room temperature or chilled.

Made this just as a change from the strawberry sauces I usually make during the summer ~ Made a double batch, & we find it GREAT OVER ICE CREAM & POUND CAKE! Thanks for a great recipe

Excellent recipe!! I made this to go over pancakes (#66241) with Chambord spiked whipped cream!! Awesome! My family of four devoured it. I also added sliced almonds, almond extract, and a few tabs of butter to the peaches. I will definetly make again.
