Grilled Peaches – Just Like Pie!

I have always wanted to try grilled peaches.  When I saw fresh peaches at the store for .69/lb,  I decided it was time to go for it.  I am so glad I did.  

Grilling peaches with sugar on top turns them into something special.  The heat caramelizes the sugar and softens the peaches, turning them into little bowls of  peach pie filling.  The best part is, you don’t have to heat up your house.

Serve them warm with vanilla ice cream and you have an exceptional dessert.  Serve them dolloped with yogurt and granola and you have a brilliant breakfast. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp Sucanat or Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 4 Fresh Peaches, washed
  • Grapeseed oil or vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. Slice peaches in half and remove the pit.
  2. Brush all sides of the peaches with the oil and place in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. 
  4. Add the sugar mixture to the peaches and gently toss until peaches are coated.
  5. Let sit at room temperature for 20-60 minutes.
  6. Cook cut side down on a hot grill for 5 minutes or until the peach has pretty grill marks.
  7. Turn the peaches over and grill on medium high for 10-15 minutes or until the fruit is tender.  Top with more sugar and cinnamon if desired.
