Suncrest Peach Glaze

Few things herald the arrival of summer like the taste of a ripe, juicy peach. One of Executive Chef Knoll’s favorite varieties is the suncrest, an heirloom peach with an orange-gold color and juicy yellow flesh, also known as freestone in California. Instead of using peaches in a typical dessert, he prefers making a sweet and savory peach glaze. The interplay of sweetness, aroma and flavor in the peaches adds flavor and dimension to the plate. Brush this savory meat marinade over cooked pork, grilled quail or roasted chicken during the last 10 minutes of cooking.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp butter

  • 1 small onion, sliced

  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed

  • 1 pinch ground cumin

  • 5 ripe suncrest peaches, peeled and crushed

  • 2 Tbsp peach liqueur

  • 2 Tbsp dark apple cider syrup

  • 2 Tbsp peach preserves

  • 2½ Tbsp Edmond Fallot or other whole grain mustard

  • ¼ cup raw honey

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon verbena or lemon thyme, finely sliced

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp butter

  • 1 small onion, sliced

  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed

  • 1 pinch ground cumin

  • 5 ripe suncrest peaches, peeled and crushed

  • 2 Tbsp peach liqueur

  • 2 Tbsp dark apple cider syrup

  • 2½ Tbsp Edmond Fallot or other whole grain mustard

  • ¼ cup raw honey

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon verbena or lemon thyme, finely sliced

Instructions

Over medium heat in a small heavy pot, sweat onion, garlic and cumin in the butter until soft. Add the crushed peaches and cook, stirring occasionally, for three minutes. Deglaze with the peach liqueur, then the apple cider syrup. Add preserves, mustard and honey. Cook for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove the pot from the heat and, when safe enough to handle, stir in minced herbs, lemon juice and season if needed. The glaze may be refrigerated for up to a week.

Brush over cooked pork, grilled quail or roasted chicken during the last 10 minutes of cooking. The dish pictured includes a bone-in pork chop, carrots, peas and sliced peaches glazed in coffee kombucha (available online), pickled mustard seed, farro piccolo, a reduction of the peach glaze, fresh basil, pink peppercorns and sel gris.
