Orange-Spiced Peaches

“These have a strong flavor a bit like the ‘Blushing Peach Pie‘ recipe. The peaches will take several hours to come down to room temperature; if you want a more mildly-spiced dessert, taste the syrup from time to time and then remove the spice bag when the flavors have developed to your liking.” – April Ferre
