1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter

2 tablespoons agave syrup

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 

Pinch sea salt 

2 large Fiji apples, thinly sliced

One 29-ounce can sliced peaches in light syrup, drained

Zest of 1/2 lemon

1/2 gallon your favorite vanilla ice cream 

Whipped cream, for serving, optional


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the agave, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and apples; mix well. Cover and let simmer until the apples begin to soften, 7 minutes. Add the peaches, stir, and continue cooking until the fruit begins to caramelize and thicken, 8 minutes. Add the lemon zest and let simmer for another minute.
