Every time I go to a BBQ at a friends house or for a birthday, I notice one common trend: everyone is so focused on the main proteins or the side dish that they forget a key player in the summer line-up. Dessert!
Summer is packed with great fruits like peaches, nectarines, and apricots. Because they are thicker, they can stand up to the heat of grilling and just get sweeter and more delicious as they cook.
Grilled Caramelized Summer Peaches:
- 3 ripe but still firm peaches, any type
- 2 tablespoons Cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons Sugar
- 1/2 stick of butter
- Tin Foil, preferably heavy duty
Slice the cleaned peaches in half. Sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar and place face down on the tin foil. Cut the butter into slabs and place in-between the peaches. Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon and sugar over the peaches and butter, and feel free to add more if you like your desserts on the sweeter side. Make a packet out of your tin foil and seal. Place on the top level of your grill so you can cook your dessert while cooking the rest of your dinner.
Serve half a warm peach with a nice dollop of whipped cream, favorite brand of whipped topping, or scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Nice, easy, and tasty end to a great summer grilled meal.
Thanks and happy eats,
