  • Taste a peach slice. If it's pretty sweet, reduce the amount of sugar you're going to add. This is something you'll have to experiment with, but go ahead and use the whole cup the first time you make it.
    Place the peach slices in a medium sized pot and stir in the sugar and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring frequently to make sure you don't burn the compote.
