Introduction: Grilled Peaches

These peaches are a wonderful treat. They're easy to make and very delicious.

Note: Runner-up in the BBQ PDQ contest. Thanks for the votes, everyone!

Step 1: Another Option

Apparently, it is also good to put some balsamic vinegar on them and grill them. If you want to do that, skip ahead to the grilling step.

Step 2: Ingredients and Tools

This is what you'll need:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 ripe medium peaches, washed
  • A grill
  • A large Ziploc bag
  • Ice cream (optional)

Once you have these, continue.

Step 3: Marinading

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Put everything in the bag. Let it set for 30 minutes.

Mix it up a bunch in the process.

Step 4: Grilling

Place the peaches cut-side down on the grill for six minutes.
You may want to pour the rest of the marinade on them.
Then flip them for another six minutes. You are done!

I eat them with ice cream. They go well together.

These were great! I didn't have any brandy so I substituted some vanilla extract and a splash of almond extract. I also added about a teaspoon of honey. Dee-lish!

I heard about this a few years ago, I think on some food network show, but they recommended a mixture of mascarpone and I think heavy whipping cream. Mascarpone at least, I know that much for sure.

That is a new idea! Maybe I'll try that on the stove until they are somewhat stable, and then transfer them.

Mmmmm I can't wait to eat them they're marinating right now... Brandy? lol too bad we have none (and even if we did my paernts wouldn't let me drink it)...

author
momo! (author)2008-07-05

I made these today at the BBQ! It was a hit! I highly suggest VANILLA ICECREAM on top right when the peaches are off the grill!

canida (author)2008-07-03

Mmmmm. If you've got good peaches or nectarines, just a quick coating of oil before grilling can be sufficient. Not that I'd ever turn down a tasty marinade, but sometimes laziness wins. ;)

dizzydave (author)2008-07-03

If you brush the peaches with balsamic vinaigrette they go great with grilled pork chops...

author
puffyfluff (author)dizzydave2008-07-03

That sounds great. I'll have to try that.

MMMM! Looks delicious! Everything is better on the grill! Now if I could only find a decent peach at the store... I don't think I've had a good, ripe peach in 15 years. Come to think of it, most of the fruits and veggies at the store are awful, especially tomatoes.

author
puffyfluff (author)Mark Rehorst2008-07-02

Yes, everything is better on the grill. I agree. The store never really has anything good, does it?

author
ecogeeko (author)puffyfluff2008-07-03

That's why I always try to go to a Farmers market for all my fruits and veggies, the junk you get at the big box grocery stores are nothing compared to what you can get if you buy fresh and local. I also think it is better to support your local community rather then big corporations (even if it cost a little bit more, it is generally worth it).

author
puffyfluff (author)ecogeeko2008-07-03

I definitely agree.

this would make some good old dirty peaches and ice cream!

Bisquick the ninja (author)2008-07-02

Are they sticky??? I usually put a bunch of fruit in a dehydrator and put it in ziplocks so when I'm out fighting ninja haters and I get hungry I have something to eat that dosn't make my throwing stars stick to my fingers!

author

The sauce is like super glue, but once it's cooked it's about half that. Good idea about the dehydrator.

fungus amungus (author)2008-07-02

Oh, these are sooo good! Was at a BBQ and a buddy made these with a reduced balsamic vinegar on top. It worked beautifully.

author

I'll have to try that. It sounds interesting.

author
ecogeeko (author)2008-07-02

That looks very tasty! I will have to try them some time!
