  • Allow time for the sugar to dissolve in the water, creating a sugar syrup
  • Add the tinned peaches (or any fruit you would prefer) to the sugar water and let this simmer in the water for about 10 minutes, allowing time for the fruit to soften
  • Allow fruit to cool and add the fruit and syrup to a blender.
