Peach Simple Syrup

Spread the love

Peach simple syrup is everything that summer tastes like and can be added to mocktails, lemonade, Italian sodas, baked goodies, and even drizzled on vanilla ice cream. It is easy to make and so versatile!

So when you have extra summer peaches, or even when you don’t you can grab some frozen peaches to whip up this natural summer sweetener.

To me, the official flavor of summer is peach. It is sweet yet fruity and a bit juicy. This sweetener adds a touch of that to anything you are making, baking or drinking. I especially love to add it to these mocktails

You can also make a simple peach Italian soda by adding a tablespoon to large glass with ice, soda water and a splash of cream.

Can I use any sugar?

Any sugar can be used for this recipe. From cane sugar to coconut sugar and date sugar to raw sugar, they all work great!

You can even give this recipe a go using our brown sugar simple syrup instructions for a bit more of a warm caramel flavor. Or get floral and fruity by combining it with our rose simple syrup!

Does it matter what kind of water I use?

Not at all. Tap water or filtered work equally as well. Just don’t use any carbonated water like club soda or seltzer.

How to make it

  • Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a pan and whisk well
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of fresh or frozen peaches

  • Bring to a boil whisking occasionally then remove from heat and let steep for 45 minutes
  • Pour syrup through a fine mesh strainer into a glass bottle, making sure to push down the fruit as you strain

Uses for the leftover sugar peaches

Be sure to save those peaches! They are so delicious and can be used in a variety of other ways including in our gluten-free rhubarb crisp with peaches. Here are some of my favorites…

  • Over icecream
  • Topping for gluten-free pancakes or gluten-free waffles
  • Made into the easiest freezer jam
  • Added to a peach Italian soda
  • Served with cottage cheese or homemade ricotta like you can find on Mamma Mangia
  • Simply served with whole cream drizzled over top

I love this recipe because it’s really two in one. This and the sugared peaches. Yum!

Fresh or Frozen Peaches

This recipe can be used with either fresh or frozen peaches. I do personally love using fresh but frozen works just as well and sometimes it is easier during non summer months. 

These other recipes can also be made with fresh or frozen fruit…

Be sure to save the extra fruit from those as well to use in the ways I suggested above. You will be thankful you did!

How do you store it?

It can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator, whichever you prefer. You can use a glass or plastic container just be sure it is cooled before pouring if you are going to use plastic. 

Does it need to be refrigerated?

Simple syrup does not need to be refrigerated. It handles well at room temperature.

How long do infused blends last?

You can keep infused blends for 1-2 weeks at room temperature or 3 weeks to a 1 month in the refrigerator. Once it starts to get cloudy or discolored, it is no longer good.
