Can You Bake Peaches With Skin?

Yes, you can! The choice is entirely up to you and your preference. I like to keep the skin because it actually helps the slices hold their shape better. It is also a time saver to leave the skin on.

Can You Use Canned Peaches?

Yes, you can use canned peaches as long as you drain them first. Make sure to buy canned peaches with no added sugars and corn syrup because it will make the dessert overly sweet and too thin. The canned peaches will also cook faster because they are softer to begin with so take that into account when cooking.

Add other spices– Such as allspice, ginger, cardamom, or clove.

Add other herbs– Such as rosemary, thyme, or basil.

Add peach schnappes- In the last minute and allow it to reduce for even more peach flavor.

Add rum– For a more intense flavor.

Add bourbon– For additional sweetness and boozy flavor.

Add nuts– Such as toasted pistachios or slivered almonds.

Try other fruits– Such as plums, apples, bananas, plantains, or pears.

Try other sweeteners– Such as honey, maple syrup, white sugar, or agave, but the results won’t be the exact same. The caramelization is best with brown sugar.

Use peach halves instead of slices– You can serve these filled with Homemade Whipped Cream, ice cream, or Homemade Caramel Sauce drizzle as a stand alone dessert.

Tips And Techniques For Brown Sugar Peaches

Use semi-ripe peaches– Because they are easy to handle. When they are very ripe, they are too soft and will lose their shape and become “mushy.” Semi-ripe is the perfect firmness.

Adjust the quantity of cinnamon and nutmeg– Add more or less according to your preferences.

If adding extracts, only add at the end– Add them after pan has been removed from heat because it will have a more intense flavor.

Don’t overlap peach slices– Because they need space in order to caramelize evenly and in the same amount of time. Overlapping prevents the caramelization.

Adjust amount of brown sugar– Add up to 1/3 cup of brown sugar for very sweet peaches. Caramelization requires brown sugar so don’t remove it entirely.

Reheat– Thaw in the fridge or at room temperature. They can be served cold, or reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop.

  1. Can I use canned peaches&drain them?

    • Yes. I answered that in the post too. You can use canned peaches but they must be drained first. Make sure to buy canned peaches with no added sugars and corn syrup. These will cook faster because they are softer too.
