Grilled Peaches |

Everything tastes better grilled (you can quote me on that). Did you know you can grill fruit? The heat caramelizes the natural sugars found in fruit, and the grill produces beautiful grill marks, making for a tasty and also pretty dessert. Most stone fruit – such as peaches, nectarines, plums – work well on the grill, because they’re hearty, and thus won’t go crashing through the grill grates because they fell apart. Not like that’s ever happened to me before…

You’ve got to try grilling peaches. It’s like the best thing ever. Super super simple. (Can you tell I like simple recipes? Especially in the summer.) You can top these grilled peaches with whatever your heart desires – ice cream, maple syrup, Greek yogurt, honey, have at it.

I made these on the grill after the coals were burning low, so that the peaches didn’t burn, but had the right amount of heat to get those perfect grill marks, and they were perfectly timed for dessert!

What’s the oddest thing you’ve ever grilled?

Grill these peaches after the coals are burning low, so the peaches don’t burn, and have the right amount of heat to get those perfect grill marks.

    I have grilled peaches and pears before. Both were so so good. It is such an easy way to transform regular ol’ fruit.
