Yield: 1 1/2 cups of sauce

This is a wonderful sauce to make with a pork tenderloin or with a roasted chicken. I found this recipe while searching for peach recipes when I had a bushel of fresh peaches that I picked up in Opelika, GA. My husband and I decided to play Iron Chef Peach and made this gastrique to go with a roasted pork tenderloin. We also made a peach and rum cocktail, a peach cobbler and fresh peaches soaked in brandy with brown sugar – to serve with vanilla ice cream.


2 Tbsp. unsalted butter

1 shallot, peeled and minced

2 cups diced peaches

2-3 Tbsp sugar

3 Tbsp white wine or Cognac

3 Tbsp. cider or white wine vinegar

salt to taste

3/4 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground cardamom


1. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium low heat.

2. Add shallots and cook until translucent – about 5 minutes

3. Add peaches, Cognac, vinegar, ginger and cardamon and salt.

4. Bring to boil over med high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-20 minutes

5. Mix in blender and serve with pork or chicken
