True duck sauce is made from peaches or apricots and an acidic ingredient like vinegar; we use lemon juice instead. If you cannot find peaches, plums will work as well. This sauce is hugely popular with everyone we’ve given the recipe!
3 pounds peaches
3 tablespoon lemon juice, divided
3 cups sugar
3 teaspoon potato starch
Peel peaches using a serrated peeler. Remove pit and cut into chunks. Place peaches, 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a bowl and let stand one hour. Transfer peaches and all accumulated juices into a large pot. Boil over medium heat, 30 minutes or until slightly jelled. Skim off any foam that rises to the top. Stir in potato starch until completely dissolved. Add remaining lemon juice. If it is still too thick, add a few teaspoons of water.
Serve with your favorite roast or chicken nuggets deep fried in a potato starch and egg batter.
