Stewed Peaches

Stewed peaches are a great topping for ice cream or cheesecake.  Yummy over oatmeal or grits.  They are also good served over poultry or pork to add some sweet to the savory!

Peel them or not.  Personally, I don't think it's worth the work.  What's a little fuzz among friends?

Stewed Peaches

2 Peaches, Pit Removed and Sliced Into Wedges
1/2 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter
1 Tablespoon of  Honey
1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
1-2 Tablespoons of Water

In a large pan melt the butter and honey over a medium heat. (I use raw honey with the comb and all.  It's a healthier honey and lasts almost forever)

Add cinnamon.

When the butter and honey begins to bubble, add peach slices and stir them around in the pan to coat each slice.

Add 1 tablespoon of water, reduce heat to low and cook covered for 10 minutes. Check the peaches about half-way through, stirring gently and adding another spoonful of water if the pan looks a little dry.

The end result should be soft peaches in a small amount of thick syrup.
