BC Grilled Peaches

EAT, family meals By August 1, 2007 Tags: , , No Comments

This is a perfect light dessert for a hot summer day or night! Grilled peaches are filled with nutrition and flavour, and go very well with vanilla ice cream or homemade granola.

Serves 2 people

You need:
2 whole peaches
8 tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 pinch of pepper

If you have a grill

  1. Clean your peaches. Cut them in half, around the pit and twist so that it becomes two halves. Now remove the pit (If you are having difficulty removing the pit, try twisting in with your fingers or using a spoon to pry it out).
  2. Rub a little lemon juice over the peach halves so that they don’t dry out or brown.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium heat.
  4. While grill is heating up, put balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, the rest of your lemon juice and pepper into a small pot. Bring to a boil and stir until the brown sugar has dissolved.
  5. Take your peaches and your balsamic glaze out to the grill.
  6. Place peaches on grill, the cut half facing down for about 2 minutes, just to mark them.
  7. Now turn the peaches over, pour glaze over them and into the “pit hole” and grill for 5-6 more minutes, until mostly soft. Serve!

PS. This recipe is great with frozen yogurt or a nice vanilla ice cream!

If you don’t have a grill:

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Clean your peaches. Cut them in half, around the pit and twist so that it becomes two halves. Now remove the pit (If you are having difficulty removing the pit, try twisting in with your fingers or using a spoon to pry it out).
  3. Take a small frying pan and preheat to medium. Place the peaches, cut side down on the pan (no oil necessary) and let them sizzle there for about 2 minutes, so that the bottom browns just a little. Now put the peaches on a tray lined with foil with the cut side up.
  4. Put balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, lemon juice and pepper into the same pan. Bring to a boil and stir until the brown sugar has dissolved.
  5. Pour the balsamic glaze over the peaches and into the “pit hole” and put in oven for 7-8 minutes, until they are somewhat soft. (Your glaze may burn a little, in the pan, but it should not burn on the peaches).
  6. Take the peaches out and serve for a lovely dessert.
