Grilling Peaches

This is one of the best and most simple ways you can elevate an already perfect fruit at the height of the season.  Grilling caramelizes the natural sugars in peaches, ramping up their sweetness and accentuating their juiciness.  Choose peaches that are just ripe, but not soft, and make sure to wash them but leave the skins on.

How to Grill Peaches

Preheat the grill to medium high. Carefully oil the grill rack.   

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits, leaving the skin on.  The pits may pop out easily, or if they are cling peaches, you may have to carve out the pit with a small sharp knife.

Season lightly with kosher salt. Grill the peaches, cut sides down for 5 minutes, with the cover on, until they are slightly softened, and have pretty grill marks.

What to Serve with Grilled Peaches:

Serve the peaches warm or at room temperature.  Some vanilla ice cream is amazing as a dessert partner.  A small drizzle of good balsamic vinegar or a balsamic glaze is a perfect addition as well.

You can also serve these with soft cheeses and grilled crusty bread for an unusual and memorable appetizer with drinks.

Also, try pairing them with grilled meat or chicken for an surprising dinner! These pair really well with pork in particular.
