Peach Waffle Syrup

"I make this sweet chunky syrup on Saturday mornings when my husband and I have extra time," says Kristina Dalton of Coker, Alabama. "You can substitute fresh or canned peaches," she notes.

    I've tried other syrup recipes and thus is by far my favorite and it is extremely easy to make. It's got great flavor and if you don't want it really thick, just cut back on the cornstarch mixture. Defintely a keeper.

    This was a delicious topping for pancakes and waffles when fruit is in season, although I did reduce the sugar. I used fresh local peaches and they were so sweet they didn't need all the sugar, I used about 1/4 cup.I make fruit syrups with 4 cups fruit, 4 cups sugar, 3 tbls lemon juice, 1/2 package of SureJell, bring to a boil, boil to minutes and can it. If it thickens, just shake the jar or stir before using. You can use any fruit you like and add spices as you wish. Almond extract is good with cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg with apple, etc. If I were going to can this recipe I'd leave out the cornstarch, which breaks down during canning and isn't advised, and thicken when I was ready to use it.

    This was a great recipe! Perfect for the fresh summer peaches I got at the farmers market. I used about 1 cup of sugar to add a little extra sweetness.
