Poached Peaches with Cinnamon Vanilla Cream

Poached eggs? Yep, I’ve heard of them. Poached fruit?!Β No….never!

I have never, ever heard of such a thing until some of you introduced me to it. And, as often is the case, I was too curious not to try it out for myself. Though I didn’t fully realize this until I spotted some peaches in my parent’s refrigerator. πŸ™‚

My mom was my sous chef and helped with the chopping….thanks mom! She also had to taste a bite or two of the peaches….you know, to make sure they tasted good and all. πŸ˜‰

Image

What did I think? It was pretty good….my mom and i liked it. Poached fruit is definitely different than non-poached fruit. Hahaha….of course it would be, but I didn’t anticipate the difference in taste.

The cream added so much to the peaches….lovely combination! Here are some pictures of my mom and nephew drinking up what was left in the bowls. πŸ™‚

The funniest part? My dad took one bite and spit it back into the bowl!! I don’t think poached fruit is up his alley. The even funnier part is the conversation thatΒ followed, because I didn’t realize he spit it back into the bowl.

Me: Let’s give this to your dad to try.

My Nephew (Whispering, crinkling his nose, and saying something like: ) But Pops spit back into his bowl..we shouldn’t give it to dad.

Needless to say, I was kind to my brother and didn’t make him eat it. πŸ˜€

Have you all poached fruit before? What sorts have you poached? How do you like it?

  1. this looks great, i am trying a new diet, not totally gluten free, but cutting down red meat, sugar and some gluten to see if this helps with pain reduction and being healthier, so we shall see but this shall go on the list though it is sweet, a treat!

  2. Oh your poor dad — missing out on all the goodness of poached fruit! πŸ™‚ I love poached fruits, and poached pears in wine are my favorite as a waffle or pancake topping around the holidays.
