Weekends are my favorite. If for no other reason than I unplug and slow down to enjoy cooking.
One of my favorite meals is Sunday Brunch. . . whether it's fresh ground french press coffee in bed, homemade beignets, or my new favorite - fresh fried peaches. Yep you heard me! Fresh fried peaches! It's a very simple recipe that pairs beautifully with chilled Champagne.
:: My Southern Sunday Fried Peaches ::
- 1 whole peach cut into 12 slices (skin on)
- 2 Tablespoons of simple syrup (simple syrup recipe is 1 cup sugar & 1 cup water brought to a boil and stirred thoroughly until sugar is dissolved - then cooled completely. You can store remaining mix in refrigerator.)
- 3 Tablespoons of unsalted butter (cut into small pieces)
- Fresh cracked pepper
Remove peaches from pan and place on plate while simple syrup, butter and peach juice cooks down to a thicker consistency.
Add peaches back to pan over medium high heat until a caramel color crust forms on the bottom. Turn peaches and cook until crust forms on reverse side.
Once peaches are browned - remove from heat, spoon over remaining sauce and serve.
Garnish can be fresh mint or lime twist.
