Total Time: 20 mins
MAKES : 4 cups

Equipment

  • Saucepan
  • Stovetop

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Fresh Peaches (Sliced or Chopped *See Notes)
  • ½ cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tbsp Arrowroot Flour (**See Notes)

Instructions

  • Add 4 cups chopped or sliced peaches into a small-medium saucepan. Then add in maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla extract and arrowroot. Mix well.
  • Then add in ½ cup maple syrup, ½ tsp cinnamon and ½ tsp vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Now, place the saucepan over medium heat, stirring often. As it heats, the peaches should start to release their juice.
  • Once it starts getting juicy, add in 2 tbsp arrowroot flour and mix well. * *If you find your Peach Pie Filling isn't thickening to your likeness, you can add an extra 1 -2 tablespoons of  arrowroot flour.
  • Keeping stirring over medium heat and bring to a light boil.
  • Once your Peach Pie Filling has thickened to your desired consistency, remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Use your Fresh Peach Pie Filling right away or save for later use. It will last for up to 7 days in the fridge.

Notes

*When making handpies or smaller pastries, I find the peaches chopped into small cubes rather than slices, easier to work with.
* *If you find your Peach Pie Filling isn't thick enough, try adding an extra 1 -2 tablespoons of  arrowroot flour.
