Good Morning and Happy Monday! If you are living in the Iowa City area…it appears we are in for some more rain…perhaps lots of it. To bring a little sunshine into your day, I wanted to share “Grilled Peaches” with you. I found this recipe in my Sunset Grill cookbook…and believe me, this recipe is WONDERFUL. Anyone close to me will tell you that I am not a huge fan of dessert. Throw some cheese or salty apps in front of me and I’m a happy girl! But every now and then, a fresh ice cream dessert hits the spot. You’ve got to try this one…even if it’s raining outside!
GRILLED PEACHES with Vanilla Ice Cream
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (I added extra)
- 4 fresh peaches
- Extra Light Olive Oil
- Vanilla Ice Cream
To begin, prepare your grill for cooking over indirect heat. (For example, on our gas grill, we have front and back burners. Once the grill was hot, I turned off the back burners and grilled my peaches on the rack above those burners.) First, brush olive oil on the grill rack. Turn all burners to high and close lid. When the grill is hot, lift the lid and turn off one of the burners.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and the cinnamon. Cut the peaches along the seam all the way around and twist the halves off the pit. Brush the cut sides with the olive oil.
Lay the peaches, cut side down, on the grill rack over direct heat until the fruit has grill marks, ~3-4 minutes.
Brush the tops with oil, turn over, and move to the area of indirect heat.
Sprinkle the cut sides with the cinnamon sugar. Cover the grill and cook until the sugar is melted and fruit is tender, 10-15 minutes.
Serve with vanilla ice cream….
and sprinkle on extra cinnamon sugar if you like. Enjoy!
Have a great week…rain or shine. 🙂
