Summer fruits. Although strawberries come in a close second, peaches have to be my favorite. Strawberries from the store can usually taste pretty good all year long, but I won't buy a peach unless it's summer. Nothing is better than biting into a whole ripe summer peach...until it starts dripping everywhere, you're running for a paper towel and you spend the next 5 minutes over the sink being a sticky mess just trying to enjoy some fruit.
Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. And if you don't, tell me all your secrets. I propose a different method. Put 'em on the grill. You're hopefully using a grill anyways and everyone loves a lighter dessert in the summer!
what it is:
a sweet and easy dessert of peaches grilled up and dusted with cinnamon and sugar-a bit like peach cobbler guts without the flour! Serves 2-4
what you need:
- 4 firm-ish peaches
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
2. Place peach halves skin side up on the grill for about 2-3 minutes.
3. While the peaches are grilling, place an aluminum or metal (just not glass or ceramic!) dish on the grill and melt the butter.
4. Remove from heat, place into the dish with the melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
