You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.
With summer peaches being abundant this time of year, I wanted to take full advantage of their sweet, fruity flavor and pair them with some earthy garden sage to make this Refreshing Low Sugar Peach Sorbet with Sage.
I think it must have been the peach-fuzz thing that made me think the flavors of peach and sage would match well together. If you’re familiar with fresh sage, then you know the leaves have the faintest bit of fuzz on them, much like a fresh peach.
