Author/ Συγγραφέας:
Recipe type/ Τύπος Πιάτου: Dessert
Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 650 gr. / 23 oz. firm peaches peeled and cut in quarters
  • 650 gr. / 23 oz. sugar
  • 250 gr. / 9 oz. water
  • 1 tbsp lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. In a pot pour the sugar and the water.
  2. Bring to boil in high and add the peaches.
  3. Lower the fire to medium/low and let it boil until the peaches are transparent and soft and the sugar and water have become syrup about 45 minutes.
  4. Remove from fire and pour the lemon and vanilla.
  5. If you are going to use it in the next 10 days just let it cool, put it in a glass vase and store it in the fridge.
  6. If you want to store it for a longer period of time then you will have to use sterilized vases.
Tips: Sometimes the syrup may become very thick and sugary or very runny. In both cases, don’t worry, we can correct it.
If it is thick, we add about ½ cup water and put it to fire again for about 5 minutes. Just before the end we add another tsp of lemon.
If it is runny we boil it more until the syrup becomes thicker.
Serve either alone or over Greek yogurt.
