Grilled Summer Peaches…

August 12, 2009

It may be hotter than a furnace, but one of the rewards of the summer is stone fruit. I love all of it – cherries, nectarines, plums, and peaches. Last night while we were fixing dinner to throw on the grill, I decided to add some peaches as well. Had I planned better I would have had some vanilla ice cream to serve with them, although we enjoyed them just the same. They turned out perfectly. I could do this every day. Well, not the 110-degrees, but the peaches definitely!

Grilled Summer Peaches
4 ripe peaches
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Mix the cinnamon, vanilla extract and brown sugar in a bowl. Coat the cut side of the peaches in vegetable oil and then place cut side down on the grill for 1-2 minutes until there are nice grill marks. Coat the sides of the peaches in vegetable oil and place back on the grill for 3-4 minutes. Spoon the brown sugar mixture over the top of the peaches and close the grill. Remove the peaches when the sugar has melted.
