Peach Compote

(Seftali Kompostosu)

<br />
Peach Compote
6 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, cut in bite size
1/4 or 1/3 cup sugar
2 cups water
1/2 tsp almond extract

2 tbsp walnuts, crumbled, lightly toasted

Bring the sugar and water to boil in a medium cooking pot. Turn the heat down to very medium-low and add the peaches in it. Cook for about 10 minutes over medium heat. Turn the heat off.

Pour into a bowl and let it cool. Then chill in the fridge. Sprinkle the walnuts in it before serve in individual bowls.

If the peaches are tasteless, make this Peach Compote to go with any kind of Pilaf or just to cool off especially in the summer time:)

Hi Binnur,

The peaches I bought from the grocery are very sweet. Is there any way I can reduce the amount of sugar or just omit it?

Sure, you can reduce the amount of sugar:) You can cook the compote with 1-2 tablespoon sugar. Taste it just before turn the heat off. If it necessary add a little bit more, stir:)
