1 tbsp whipping cream 35% 15 mL

Method

  1. Take the peaches out of the can, drain them, reserving the syrup then set them aside.
  2. Pour the peach syrup in a pan and reduce over medium heat 6-7 min until it is lightly caramelized and golden-coloured.

Poor directions resulted in very little "carmelization", not too great overall. And certainly not a good use of ingredients!

This was very yummy. I did use peaches in a 'light' syrup, which clearly wasn't thick enough as it took quite a while to reduce, and I added some sugar to help it caramelize. End result was very yummy though.
