When it’s stifling outside, we love nothing more than getting out of the kitchen and letting the slow cooker do all our work for us. Not to mention it’s great to take advantage of all the amazing fruit that’s in season during these warmer months.
Here, we’ve got the perfect peach compote recipe for you; it’s made in the slow cooker, so you can kick back and relax, and it’s just as delicious on its own as it is served in a tasty, homemade pie…bring it on, summer!
