Sticky Peach Sauce
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: ½ cup
  • ½ cup no-sugar-added peach preserves (homemade or store-bought)
  • ⅓ cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon orange zest
  • 3 large Medjool dates, pitted
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  1. Combine the preserves, broth, juice, and zest in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. While you wait for the mixture to come to a boil, cover dates in a small dish with water and microwave for 30 to 60 seconds until softened. Drain the water and mash the dates into a paste using a fork.
  3. Once the mixture has been boiling and reducing down for 5 to 7 minutes until thickened, whisk in the date paste and sea salt until well combined. Remove from heat.
  4. Whisk together the arrowroot and cold water in a small dish and then pour directly into the saucepan. Whisk continuously for 1 minute to thicken the sauce. It will lighten up in color and thicken to a sticky sauce.
