Make this up in advance for sourdough pancakes. I used Celestial Seasonings® tea. Substitute water for tea if you don’t have it on hand. Chopped pecans might taste good in this, as well as brandy instead of vanilla.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ cup cold peach-flavored tea
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 cups diced peaches
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Whisk tea and cornstarch together in a small bowl; transfer to a saucepan. Add peaches; cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until just boiling, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in white sugar, brown sugar, and nutmeg; simmer over medium-low heat until sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes to thicken.

  1. Amazing and I love the zip that the tea gave it. I used an herbal peach tea and according to the box the first ingredient was orange peel - which I think gave it a wonderful tanginess. This recipe is a keeper exactly as it is although I'm sure it could be tweaked lots of - Read more ...
  2. This recipe was so easy to make and it came out delicious!!! I'm actually making more now so I can freeze it in small batches to have on hand to put on everything imaginable.

  7. As with all recipes I review, I followed this recipe faithfully. If I make the recipe a 2nd time I might make a few adjustments that suite my preferences. Excellent!

  9. For this recipe I used Snapple Peach Tea and no-sugar-added frozen peaches. I did take a little under half of the peaches and a bit of the liquid and puree it then added it back to the pan to make more syrup.
