Did not carmelize, just have the peaches from the can with a little cream on them and save 15 minutes standing over a hot stove.

Poor directions resulted in very little "carmelization", not too great overall. And certainly not a good use of ingredients!

This was very yummy. I did use peaches in a 'light' syrup, which clearly wasn't thick enough as it took quite a while to reduce, and I added some sugar to help it caramelize. End result was very yummy though.
