- 4 cups chopped peaches
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 quarter sized pieces of ginger, peeled
- Combine the peaches, water, and sugar in a heavy bottomed sauce pan. Crush the peaches with a potato masher until they no longer hold their shape then add the ginger to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally until the liquid has reduced and the mixture has thickened.
- Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the peach ginger mixture into the strainer. Gently press on the solids with a spatula to extract all of the syrup then discard the solids. Allow the syrup to cool then store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
