  • 2 cups sliced or diced peaches

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch or tapioca starch


  1. Combine 2 tablespoons of water and cornstarch in a small dish and set aside.
  2.  In a medium saucepan, bring water, sugar or honey, and peaches to a boil. Stir occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3.  Add the water-starch mixture and stir to combine. Turn off heat, let it sit for 5 minutes to thicken.
  4.  For a smooth syrup, transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth.
