Gilmore Girls Sookie’s Peach Sauce Recipe
In the very first episode of Gilmore Girls, we are introduced to Sookie who had just been buried under a pile of pots and had her stitches pop open. While one of the main characters, Lorelai is understandably concerned; Sookie doesn’t even seem to notice; she’s too excited that she’s finally perfected her peach sauce.
When someone thinks about their recipes before their own wellbeing, we know they’re a passionate chef. Sookie, who begins as the head chef at the Independence Inn is that indeed.
As a tribute to Sookie, we’re sharing our own version of her delicious peach sauce; serve this atop pancakes or along steamed chicken.
- 4 peaches, peeled
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp orange juice
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- Slice the peaches, discarding the seeds.
- Sauté the peaches in warmed butter over a stove for 4 minutes.
- Stir in the maple syrup, orange juice and ginger.
- Allow to boil and cook for 2-4 minutes.
- Take off the stove.
