Recipe: Grilled Peaches


6 peaches

Olive oil


Gas or charcoal grill


Sharp knife


Prepare the grill. Light a gas grill to medium heat. If you're cooking over charcoal, grill the peaches after everything else has been grilled.

Halve and pit the peaches. Run a sharp knife along each peach's seam to halve them. Remove the pit and brush each cut side with olive oil.

Grill cut-side down, over medium heat, for 4 to 5 minutes. Place the peaches cut-side down on the grill and cook undisturbed until grill marks appear, 4 to 5 minutes.

Flip the peaches and cook until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the peaches and grill until the skins are charred and the peaches are soft, 4 to 5 minutes more.

Serve the peaches. Remove from the grill. Serve the grilled peaches with vanilla or butter pecan ice cream, or even as an accompaniment to grilled pork.
