Katie’s Corner: Peaches & Cream

Posted on   |  No Comments

Summer is the season of fruit!  Picked at the peak of the season, there is nothing better than fresh peaches. While we now live in a world where you can get anything with free two day shipping, there is actually a comfort in the fact that you really cannot get a good peach except in the height of summer. Because you have to wait, it makes peach season that much more exciting!

A ripe peach might be best eaten simply as-is, with the juice dripping off your chin. But if you are already lighting the grill, here is a great dessert that takes advantage of that!

Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream

Serves 4

4 peaches, cut in half with pit removed

1 cup water

¼ cup brown sugar

½ teaspoon ground ginger

½ teaspoon finely ground pepper

Mix water, sugar and spices together until sugar dissolves and a thin syrup forms.

Coat peaches with syrup and place on a medium hot grill. Let peaches cook until slightly caramelized.

Remove from heat and serve with Vanilla Ice Cream. Drizzle more of the sugar syrup on top if desired.

Enjoy!
