3 fresh peaches, sliced and pitted – leave skins on
3 fresh plums, sliced and pitted – leave skins on
3 fresh nectarines, sliced and pitted – leave skins on
1/2 c. light brown sugar
2 t. ground coriander
1/2 t. powdered ginger
1/4 t. sea salt
Place all ingredients in large saucepan, over medium-low heat; stir till sugar melts.
Cover and cook about 10 minutes, stirring as needed. Cook as long as you want till your desired softness is obtained.

Notes: The coriander and ginger make your taste buds sparkle!
There’s no need to add water or thickener. It takes care of itself in both instances.
