Grilled Peaches

28 Aug

I’ve heard so many people, blogs, magazines, recipe sites talking about grilling peaches. Everytime I hear about it, I think “I have to try that” and I always forget.

Look at this beauty

Well peaches are just about coming into season and I was bound and determined to toss one on the grill with our burgers tonight.

Hahaha Peachbutt

I cut it in half and left the pit in. I doused it with vegetable oil and placed it face-down on the grill for 5 minutes. Then I flipped it over on the other side for another 5 minutes.

The result? Delicious carmelized sweet treat. I cant tell you how simply delicious this tastes. I will be trying variations on fruit and toppings with this one – such as greek yogurt and honey and nuts…….!

Right off the grill

Cut up and ready to eat

Here is one that I made where I put a dollop of greek yogurt (0% fat) and drizzled some honey on top. This was really good and would be great to serve as a nice dressed up healthy dessert!

All dressed up

Delicious, sweet, and creamy

This is sooooooo beyond simple and I really encourage EVERYONE to try it. Here’s the recipe (although no real recipe is needed)….

Grilled Peaches

Ingredients:

  • Peaches (as many as you need)
  • Vegetable oil

Optional Toppings:

  • Greek Yogurt or whipped cream
  • Honey

Directions:

Slice peaches in half in a bowl. Twist them apart into 2 halves, do NOT remove the pit.

Put vegetable oil on top of peaches and cover on the inside flesh really well.

Place pit-side down on hot grill for approx 5 minutes. Then baste the top skin with some more oil and flip over to the other side for another 5 minutes. Remove from grill and serve warm if possible.

Note: you can also use nectarines and plums (plums are a bit more delicate so dont cook as long). Feel free to mix it up!!

    I have been grilling all kinds of fruits all summer with varying degrees of success. I am somewhat of a purist when it comes to these experiments as I like to taste the flavor of my BBQ. And, I still use charcoal on a old seasoned grill, so things are exceptionally vibrant with flavor. Here are some other ideas.

    * Cut apple
    * Tomatoes either whole, cherry or thick cut – turn only once
    * Onion for certain – cut for certain, but I have been experimenting with whole
    * Potato – if you use charcoal, drop into the coals, add a smidge of butter and if you have smoking chips, add those
    ** My favorite has been avocado…this is fantastic – cut in half and grill
    ** Pineapple of course
    ** Nectarines, Plums, cherries – they all work and are amazing

    The heat of a grill, especially if you can sear, or smoke, seals in all the juices…totally amazing.

    I love quick and easy (healthy) desserts. Did this just the other day and topped it with a cardamom-honey sauce that a friend made. You know where to check it out.
