Grilled Peaches right off the grill

Description

There is no easier dessert than grilled peaches. The juiciest ripe peaches, a little oil and a grill, that’s it. Yet the taste of a simple grilled peach is almost magical. They can be used in both sweet and savoury recipes but for dessert that little indent from the stone is perfect to hold ice cream.

Peaches are perfect on their own but raspberries are ripe at the same time and together they are divine. Try this combination in a pie, a fruit pizza or a fruit crisp.

After grilling these peaches my final dessert was served with a small scoop of ice cream, a handful of freshly picked raspberries and a drizzle of my homemade raspberry sauce, a simple yet decadent dessert.

A Seasonal Strategy – Grilled Peaches

To add variety and excitement to the food you prepare in your kitchen think of the seasons. A sure sign of what fruits are at their peak is their availability at the farmers market or the size of the display at the grocery store. Sometimes the look can be deceiving but most often they should have smooth skin, no blemishes and simply look fresh. You may even smell the aroma as you walk by.

So what do I mean by a seasonal strategy? Well, this is the time of year to enjoy all of your favourite recipes that call for peaches. Be sure to try new combinations as well and anything that sound interesting to you. Soon enough peach season will be over so create a simple system to save your seasonal favourites. It might be a real or virtual recipe box, a binder or maybe just a list of the names on a recipe card. Then you will be ready to repeat all of your favourite peach recipes next August and over time you will gather quite a collection.
