Natural Peach Syrup

I try to avoid most syrups as they are too sugary. I’ve been on a Mediterranean diet to help lower my cholesterol and to hopefully lose weight. I found this recipe and thought I would share it. It doesn’t have any sugar in it. You will need these ingredients:

  • 6 cups sliced peaches
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 3 T. lemon juice

In a large pot, combine peaches and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until peaches are soft and have colored the liquid, approximately 20 minutes. Strain through a sieve over a bowl. Discard peach solids. Return strained juice to pot. Add honey and stir. Bring to a boil. Skim off any foam. Add lemon juice. Pour hot syrup into clean half-pint jars. Leave a 1/2 inch head space. Wipe rim of jars with a damp cloth. Allow to cool, about an hour. Apply lids. Store in fridge up to 3 weeks or place in freezer up to 6 months. The syrup is good on pancakes or anything else your heart desires.
