This Peach Brandy Sauce is so perfect for summertime. Served over ice cream, cake, waffles or pork chops, it’s a sweet treat your mouth will absolutely love!
Who doesn’t love a recipe that’s equally as good on sweet or savory dishes? That’s this Peach Brandy Sauce, which is so perfect for summertime!
Whether you serve this over pork chops, as a topping on ice cream, or eat it straight out of the bowl, you’ll love the plump, juicy, ripe peach flavor with just a touch a brandy for that added kick.
We served it over grilled pork chops and we were in summertime heaven! 🙂
But, I also like to dream about it swimming in sweet cream, or topped with marscapone. Spoon, anyone?
If you guys could see me blogging as I write this, I know you’d laugh. And, I’m ok with that. 🙂
Because I have a desk job and am blogging all the time, it means I sit behind a desk a lot. A few months ago, I bought a sit/stand desk that I absolutely love. The simple fact that I can raise the desk to standing height and continue to write and blog after I’ve been sitting way to long, gives such relief to a stiff back!
To get even more comfortable, I took advice from a friend, and I bought this Revolution 101 Balance Board Trainer. Let me tell you, learning to ‘ride’ this thing has not been easy. 🙂
You see those knicks at the very tippy top and at the bottom? Those are my life-line. Those are the scars of the board slamming against the far edge of the feet of my desk when I’m falling off the darn thing. See? My lifeline. For without them, I’m afraid I’d be sitting on the floor!
So, imagine this…my desk is elevated 4 feet in the air and on hardwood floors, I mount this “balance board” and pretend to balance comfortably while trying not to get bucked off and land with a thud on the floor.
Yikes! You could even go so far as to say, I risk my life every time I write you a post. 🙂
So, you might be wondering…what does this have to do with Peach Brandy Sauce?
Well almost nothing. But lets just say I’m not going to be enjoying this Peach Brandy Sauce and then trying to mount that balance board any time soon. I’ve got enough problems balancing on that thing! 🙂
p.s. I really do love this balance board, and it gets easier the more you do it. And after a while, I’m proof you’ll even be able to remove your death grip from the edge of the desk. Ha!
Peach Brandy Sauce
- 1 pound fresh ripe peaches, cut into pieces, pit removed
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup brandy
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- Rinse peaches under cold water. Cut in half, then in small pieces and discard pit.
- Add water and brandy to a saucepan. Add peaches, nutmeg and 3 tablespoons brown sugar. Turn on medium-high and heat until boiling and simmering at the edges of the pan. Turn heat down to medium and let simmer for 8 minutes or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
- Serve or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to us.
I could eat a big giant bowl of this peach sauce all on it’s own, but I know it would taste heavenly over pork chops or ice cream! Delicious idea, and thank you for risking your life for us! haha Pinned.
Hahaha! I knew you’d laugh at that. Trust me, I’ve taken some risky falls on that dang thing, but I’m bound and determined to ride it! Ha!

YUM! I love the addition of that nutmeg! I think my family would totally love this if I could substitute the Brandy with something else! Thanks for sharing, Kristi! 😀
Thank you! Let me know what you substitute, because I want to visit and try your version! xoxo

I used to work at a physio clinic and would stand on one of those things for almost my whole shift!! They’re so great!! And yes I love sauces that can be sweet and savoury and I can’t get over how beautiful your photos are!!
OMGosh, I’m coming to your house for lessons then! Hahaha! I’ve nearly fallen off that thing a dozen times. Once I *finally* get balanced I’m there, I’m so proud of myself! LOL But, you’re right. I absolutely love it!
I’ve always wanted one of those standing desks! I sit a lot too at the computer and always feel like that would help! haha I did have to smile picturing you using that balance board! Not that I should talk … I feel like I would be a hot mess with that.
And this sauce … looks amazing. I can so see how it would be fantastic with savory foods!
Ashley – you totally SHOULD get a standing desk. It is ssssoooo worth the money. I adore that thing, and I’m up/down/up/down all.day.long. I got mine at Dania Furniture. I don’t know if you have one of those or not…
Sarah @ The Chef Next Door says
I love your story about the balance board! I’m certain I’d spend most of the day flat on my behind LOL. But anyway, this sauce looks incredible and I can just picture it now on top of a stack of pancakes! I think I may be making some this weekend. 🙂
Oh my – I’m coming over to your house Sarah! That sounds incredible!
Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes says
I love this sauce! I have a peach tree in my backyard and need ideas of what to do with them!
OMGosh Ashley – so jealous! If I had a peach tree in my backyard, you could find me behind my computer eating peaches and not bon-bons! Haha!
The balance board sounds so cool and so does a standing desk! Ever since blogging, I think I’ve been sitting way too much so I love these ideas! And oh my, this sauce looks SO good! I can’t get enough of peaches right now and the brandy is such a fun touch!
Thanks Kelly! I wish for you a standing desk because they are fabulous for those of us that sit at a desk all day. And the balance board? You definitely need to be ready for it. Haha! xoxo
