Grilled Peaches. So simple, yet amazingly delicious. Did you know they don’t even have to be fully ripe to grill them?
Grilled peaches. Wow!
Don, here, planning my trip to the Harrisonburg Farmers Market, to look for some peaches. Boy, do I love peaches! Especially Grilled Peaches. Ready in 25 minutes. Do you know that August 23rd is National Eat a Peach Day? What a good time to make grilled peaches.
Eat a Peach Today
There are so many ways to eat ripe peaches. But what if the peaches need a few days to reach peak ripeness, and I get the urge to eat one right now? Grill those not-yet-quite-ripe peaches!
In the summertime I like to use the grill instead of heating up the kitchen. This means that when I want to make grilled peaches, it’s likely the grill on the deck is already hot. And the cool thing is that Grilled Peaches can cook while we are eating supper and will be ready just in time for the dessert course. Grilling is simple and quick. Just cut your peaches in half, and put them face down on a hot grill. There’s a tiny bit more to it, but details are in the recipe.
What Makes a Good Peach?
Peaches start ripening in July and are still available now where I live in the Shenandoah Valley. The best, ripest peach is one that when I first bite into it, the flavor explodes in my mouth. It is so juicy that the luscious liquid dribbles down my chin. My favorite way to eat peaches is juicy and raw, but I also love Grilled Peaches, peach cobbler, peach pie, peach crisp, peach salsa and lots of other peach dishes.
What You Need
Well, if you’re going to grill something, you’ll need a grill. You also need measuring spoons and a good grill set. But get yourself some beautiful dinnerware, too.
Grilled Peaches RecipePrint
Warm, fresh peach, seasoned lightly with sugar and cinnamon
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 20 minutes
- Total Time: 25 minutes
- Yield: 2 1x
- Category: Dessert
- Cuisine: American
- 2 fresh peaches
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- Slice the peaches in half along the line formed between the stem and the flower end.
- Remove the pit.
- Place the peaches cut side down on the hot grill.
- Close the cover if yours is a covered grill.
- Cook for 5 to 10 minutes depending on how hot the grill is.
- If the grill marks are seared onto the peach and it is just starting to brown, turn it over.
- Mix the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the cut side.
- Close the lid and turn the gas grill off. (If you use a charcoal grill, move the peaches out of direct heat and leave the lid off if you think the temperature is too hot.)
- Grill for another 10 minutes or so depending on how hot the grill is.
- The peaches are done when they feel soft to the touch and the indentation where the pit was fills with juice.
- Serve just as they come off the grill. Or add some heavy cream, ice cream or maybe a shortbread cookie.
Note: For a different flavor, spoon a dollop of raspberry jelly in the pit indentation instead of the cinnamon-sugar combination.
