Grilled peaches with balsamic glaze
This recipe was inspired by my aunt, who never fails to impress with her elaborate and delicious meals. Prepare these grilled delicacies on a grill or BBQ for a perfect complement to chicken, fish, or vegetables. I highly recommend using in-season peaches, as they will give the best flavour and texture.
2 large ripe peaches, halved and pitted
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp sugar, honey, or maple syrup
ground black pepper, to taste
optional: 2 tbsp crumbled blue cheese
Dissolve the sugar in the balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
Preheat the grill (or BBQ) to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill grate and place the peaches on the grill cut side down. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the flesh is caramelized. Flip the peaches over then brush with the balsamic mixture. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Transfer the peaches to a serving dish and drizzle with the remaining balsamic mixture. Sprinkle with fresh black pepper and crumbled blue cheese (if desired).
