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.

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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).

  1. This sounds like a great excuse to use my yummy balsamic vinegar from Italy. A drizzle of the really good stuff at the end.

  2. Reblogged this on Spelt for Choice: Marian's Kitchen Blog and commented:
    This looks a quick delicious dessert from DiNutrition. Only back from summer hols, ouch!!! Easing back slowly.

  3. I was just thinking about balsamic and berries so this is a nice twist. The balsamic really mixes so nicely with a little vanilla ice cream too. Yum!
