How to Make Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream and Honey Balsamic Drizzle

  • Start with super-fresh peaches that are ripe yet still firm.  You don’t want them too ripe or they’ll crush in your hand while trying to work with them.
  • Whisk together the balsamic vinegar and honey and set aside.

  • Cut them in half starting at the stem end.  Remove the pit.  I like to cut around the pit with a birds-beak knife, then scoop out the pit with a teaspoon.  Immediately brush with olive oil to prevent any oxidation.

  • If grilling on your outdoor grill, be sure to clean it off well before grilling the peaches.  You don’t want your dessert tasting like your dinner!
  • Place them on a grill or grill pan that has been preheated to medium-high.  Grill 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, flip, then grill another 2 to 3 minutes on the other.

    A great way to bring some dessert to the grill! Where I live, we need be outside as much as we can while the outside is good.
