This dish is just peachy! It's simply succulent whether it's served warm or cold.
1/4 cup all fruit marmalade or peach preserves
2 Tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
2 Tbsp water
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
4 firm-ripe peaches, cut into 3/4"-thick wedges
1 Tbsp natural (un-blanched) sliced almonds
2 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
1 In a medium saucepan, combine preserves, orange juice concentrate, water, and cinnamon; stir until syrupy. With rubber spatula, fold in peaches and mix gently until well coated.
2 Place pan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring gently from time to time.
3 Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, turning peaches several times, 5 to 8 minutes, or until peaches are softened but not mushy. Remove pan from heat and set aside, covered.
4 In a small skillet, toast almonds over medium-high heat, tossing frequently, until lightly browned.
5 Remove the almonds from the pan as soon as you've finished toasting them or they will continue cooking and may burn. Immediately transfer toasted almonds to small plate.
6 To serve, spoon peaches and syrup into dessert dishes or goblets. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and top with sour cream.
