If you love the taste of peaches, this compote is right up your alley. Unlike something sweet like a peach jam, this savory compote has notes of cinnamon, rosemary, garlic and red pepper flakes to add pizzaz to every bite.

How Do You Make The Best Savory Peach Compote?

Peaches are one of the most delicious fruits around, and they make a great healthy snack. I especially love the taste of peaches in dishes where it is unexpected. While many will take fruit and add it to desserts, my favorite is making it into other dishes like Citrust Maple Pork Chops or Lemon Garlic Shrimp. This savory peach compote recipe is easy to make and can be used in place of a marinade or sauce for your meat dishes.
