Spiced Peaches

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Satisfied Kris

I serve this at room temperature as a side dish for ham. Any leftovers are eaten (cold) with cottage cheese or by themselves. The recipe can be easily doubled. I don't remember the name of the cookbook it came from, but it was replicating dishes from colonial America. (Did canned peaches existed at that time?) :) Don't let the vinegar throw you, the flavors blend smoothly.

Very tasty! Thanks for posting, I had previously made this the "easy" way (open can, strain into bowl, add cinnamon and brown sugar and cream), this is much better.
