Ginger Glazed Peaches

Ginger Glazed Peaches

From ripe summer berries, cherries and juicy watermelons and stone fruits, summer time brings out the best of mother nature. In an effort to eat healthy, locally and seasonally I like to get fresh fruits and veggies into every meal, even dessert.

Ginger glazed peaches are an easy dessert to make with big summer flavor. In this recipe, I sautee the peaches in a little butter then simmer them in spicy ginger beer to create a sweet syrup. Pop a peach on a piece of poundcake and top with a dollop of whipped cream, ice cream or whipped ricotta cheese and you have an unbelievably tasty and seasonal dessert. If you don't have fresh peaches you can use canned or frozen peaches that have been thawed or switch up the fruit to pineapple, apricots, nectarines, pears or apples.

Whip the ricotta and honey until smooth and keep in the fridge until service. Pre heat a skillet over a medium flame. Heat the butter and when it stops foaming add the peaches face down. Cook the peaches on both sides until slightly caramelized.

Deglaze the pan with ginger beer and reduce the liquid until it is like syrup. Serve the warm peaches over a slice of poundcake, top with the whipped ricotta and drizzle the sauce over the top.

Well, It's been several years, but my show Cooking with Egg is back on track. Check out my first episode called "Fruit Cups". I shot this in Silver Spring with my buddy Wanakhavi and finished it up with an awesome new filmmaker out of Baltimore named Brian Morrison of Wood Room Cinema. Big shout out to the Foley Family for letting me takeover their kitchen for the day.

In this episode I am going to teach you how to make a fruit cup for everyday of the week. Sharpen your knives and lets get crackin'!
