Sweet Peach Compote without a drop of sweetener.  Amazing cold on yogurt and hot on oatmeal.


  • 4 cups coarsely chopped peaches
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Add peaches, water, and vanilla to the pot of the pressure cooker.  Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 1 minute.
  2. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 5 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.
  3. To thicken, stir together cornstarch and water in a small bowl.  Select saute to bring peaches to a simmer. Pour cornstarch mixture into peaches and whisk continuously until thick, about 1 minute.  
  4. Use immediately or cool and store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.  Can also be frozen to enjoy for months after peach season is over.


  • Enjoy this peach compote over desserts, warm breakfasts, in yogurt, or simply by the spoonfuls.
  • The compote will thicken a bit as it cools, but if eating it hot, use a cornstarch slurry to thicken it up.  Another option is to stir in a tablespoon or 2 of chia seeds while it’s hot and cover for 5 minutes.
