Peach Kompot

It is a peach season and I managed to acquire big box of Georgia peaches which are very sweet and tasty and don’t have long shelf life.

So a portion of these peaches made their way into this Peach Kompot (in Russian “kompot” stands for a boiled fruit drink).

As any kompot, Peach kompot is pretty easy to make: just boil peaches with a bit of sugar and cool it down to infuse.

Removing skin from peaches makes them nice to consume, but you don’t have to do it if it seem like a hassle: just slice peaches in halves and remove pits, skin will get separated during boiling process by itself.
