Fresh Peach Syrup
Don’t miss one delicious recipe and get my FREE e-cookbook click here!
today is a PERFECT day to make this, trust me, in a few minutes, you’ll be sipping it off a spoon and dreaming what you will use it in.
Just imagine how sweet and delicious fresh peaches are, the flavor is undeniable fantastic and it’s hard to pass them when you see them in the store or market. Sometimes you can even smell the yumminess as you approach them.
I have a whole list of things to try this syrup on.
like this LEMONADE…
it looks fantastic, doesn’t it! Just add a tablespoon or two of the peach syrup to your favorite lemonade recipe.
I like half cup of lemon juice, quarter cup sugar, with 18 oz water.
Cut and boil them in water and sugar and once cooled press the peaches through a sieve.
One of my favorite drinks to make with peach syrup is peach boba tea, I just love boba!
It’s not difficult to make
I purchase the black tapioca pearls (boba) on amazon, these are what the boba tea places use, also known as bubble tea. and follow the directions on the package basically.
I’ve made boba many times, you do need lots of water to boil it in, I’ve purchased other packages without great instructions so now I use a 4 qt pot with 10 cups of water when boiling one cup of boba. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes (some varieties only need 5-6 minutes of simmering, or until they are soft and chewy, if they are firm keep cooking. place the boba in cold water when they are at the desired consistency. Then drain the water and add a tablespoon of sugar on top of them. They are best when used immediately, they get firmer when they are in the fridge, so bring them to room temperature for best taste, or microwave them to soften them up again, this only takes a few seconds.
Brew some tea, add a tablespoon or two of the peach syrup and you can add milk if you prefer or not then drop in a tablespoon or two of boba and grab a big straw and enjoy!
This is the boba I’ve used.
If you need a few ideas, here they are…
The options on what to use it in are endless

Remember the riper and sweeter the fruit, the better tasting the syrup will be.

Do you peel the peaches or leave the skins on and then strain the syrup before bottling?
You don’t need to peel the peaches you can see by the photos in the post, the skins are still on, after they are cooked you will press them through a strainer, the skins will remain in the strainer. It’s really easy to make and so yummy! Enjoy
Thank you ! I have not made fruit syrup before but I am going to give this one a try… after I find some
cute little bottles to store it in. Looking forward to seeing more ideas from you.

Your instructions don’t say to strain them before refrigeration. I found that out by one of the comments. I look forward to making this since peaches are my favorite fruits.
thanks for letting me know the instructions weren’t clear, there are photos that show the straining part, I updated the instructions to be more detailed. Hope you enjoy the syrup peach is my favorite all year, when cherries are in season I love cherry you can see that recipe here https://www.createdby-diane.com/2014/07/how-to-make-cherry-syrup.html
Can this be canned?
Yes, I did a little searching and it appears you can CAN syrup in a water bath to preserve it up to a year.
can stevia be used instead of sugar
I have not made syrups with stevia as I do not prefer the taste, but I have made syrups with Erythritol (Swerve) and only needed 1/2 the amount of the called for sugar with great results. Erythritol does not spike your sugar like stevia does and have been using it to create more low calorie recipes and really like it, there is no calories in Swerve, and it comes in granulated and powder form so you can use it in many recipes that would typically call for granulated or powdered sugar.
Where did you get the milk bottles you used in the photos from.
I found some on Amazon here is the link https://amzn.to/2OFBfdz Hope that helps, I sometimes find them in kitchen supply stores. Home Goods and Hobby Lobby are others stores I’ve gotten some at as well.
Where did you get the milk bottles though that have the bubble tea in them
Here is a link to the mini milk bottles https://amzn.to/30FC0rn
