Peach Syrup is perfect for topping sweet breakfast treats like pancakes and waffles and can be made with either fresh or frozen peaches.
I love it when peaches are in season. And I generally know how to choose perfectly fresh peaches. Inevitably though I end up with a few peaches that aren’t so great. Meaning they won’t come off the pit. Or they’re too mushy to slice and serve. So it makes sense to make something out of ugly peaches. Like this luscious Peach Syrup. It’s so delicious as a topping for sweet breakfast treats. Pancakes. Waffles. French Toast. And even if it’s not peach season, you can make this syrup with frozen peaches too.
How to Make Peach Syrup
Peel, pit and slice your fresh peaches. Or simply open up a bag and dump your frozen peaches into a medium-sized sauce pan. Add sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the peaches can easily be mashed with a fork. Remove the cooked peaches from the heat. Stir in some pure maple syrup.
What to Serve with Peach Syrup
I served this Peach Syrup with a new recipe I have coming up, Buttermilk French Toast. It was so incredibly yummy. Here’s some more recipes that will go well with this syrup.
- Cinnamon Pecan Waffles
- Best Buttermilk Pancakes
- Dutch Baby Pancake
- Baked French Toast Casserole
- Brown Butter Pecan Pancakes
- Use more or less sugar in the syrup, depending on the natural sweetness of your peaches. 1/3 cup was the right amount for frozen peaches.
- Keep the peach syrup in a jar with an air tight lid for up to five days.
- Freeze peach syrup in a plastic jar with an air tight lid for up to one month.
- Did you know there are over 300 different varieties of peaches in the United States? Find out about the best types of peaches at my favorite place to purchase peaches, The Peach Truck.

- 16 oz peaches fresh or frozen
- 1/3 cup sugar more or less depending on the natural sweetness of the peaches

- Cover the pan, bring the mixture to a gentle boil.
- Uncover and reduce heat to simmer. Simmer the peaches, stirring occasionally, until the peaches are easily mashed with a fork.

- Syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days. It will keep in the freezer for up to one month.
We have a peach tree that produces so many peaches, and while some of them are great, some of them are just kind of so so. This recipe was perfect for those peaches. I had some frozen from a few weeks ago, and this was a perfect way to use them.
So glad this recipe was useful for you Jennifer.
How beautiful and yummy is this syrup. Thank you for the recipe. It was easy to follow

This syrup looks amazing. At our farmer’s market the peach vender sells really ripe peaches or the imperfect ones for super cheap. I am so making this peach syrup for my yogart and ice cream.
Yes, it would be delicious on both yogurt and ice cream!
This peach syrup is simple to prepare, and so delicious. I could eat it with a spoon, but it is so good on so many things too!
I definitely snuck a few spoonfuls while I was photographing it 🙂
I love peach season too!! We made this as a topping for pancakes and it was absolutely delicious!!
So happy to hear this.
My mom just got a big bunch of peaches at the Peach Truck and so this will be a fun peach recipe to help use them up before they go bad. Thanks!
I love the Peach Truck! Glad to help!
Is it possible to can this syrup? I have a bunch of peaches that I froze last month since they were too soft and ripe for straight canning, I did make some jam first though. This sounds like it would be great as teacher Christmas gifts along with some pancake mix.
I haven’t canned it myself, but I’m sure you could!
Brooke did you can this and if so how did it turn out? I would like to do the same.
