We were just in North Carolina, dropping our youngest off at college and had to shop at the local Farmers Market for some fresh fruit and veggies for our girl before we left. We ended up driving peaches and blackberries as big as your head halfway across the country because they were too incredible to pass up!
Last night we had grilled peaches and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Grilling them just intensifies the sweetness, and adding a little butter and sugar doesn’t hurt at all!
Turn on your grill and set the heat high. You can place the peaches directly on the grates, but I like to use a grill pan. Place the pan on the grill while heating.
Cut the peaches in two halves and remove the pit. I don’t bother to peel them, but you could. Brush some oil (I use grapeseed) on the inside and sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on each. Please the peaches on the hot pan or grates and shut the grill top, allow to cook for 4-5 minutes and turn them over to cook another 3-4. Remove from the heat and add a pat of butter to each middle. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and savor the taste of summer!
