BBQ’d Peaches

Barbequed peaches sounds strange, I know, but they are actually delicious & a wonderfully easy summer dessert!  We first had them at my friend Vanessa’s house & both Colin & I thought they were fantastic.  Until that point I had never really thought about barbequing peaches but knew it was something I would definitely like to try.

Peach season was in full swing the first time I made barbequed peaches.  I say “I” but I really should say “we”.  I got them ready & Colin did the barbequing (we are a good team that way).  I knew roughly how to make them as I had watched Vanessa do it but I still looked up a few recipes just to be sure.  I came across one by the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2013/06/grilled-peaches-pecans/), which gave me inspiration.  I didn’t really follow her recipe, just used one key ingredient, maple syrup.  We were making these peaches for my in-laws & both my husband & my mother-in-law love ANYTHING maple so I knew peaches with maple syrup would be a hit.

If you’re wanting to try this at home, it’s probably one of the quickest, easiest desserts you can make that still tastes amazing.  There is very little prep time & the ingredient list is small.  All you need is the following:

Peaches

Maple Syrup

Vanilla Ice Cream

First take your peaches & wash them well.

DSC_1398Once the peaches are halved, brush the tops with maple syrup.  You don’t need a lot, just coat lightly.  The syrup will pool slightly in the middle of the peaches.

DSC_1401I did all of this prep work before dinner & let the peaches sit & syrup soak in while we were eating.  Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of the actual barbequing of the peaches since it was dark (& I think I was doing dishes!).  BBQ the peaches on medium for 10 minutes or so, just until heated through with nice grill marks.

DSC_1407Easy & delicious. Warm peaches, a hint of maple syrup, cool vanilla ice cream… are you hungry yet?  My husband has actually said that this is his new favourite dessert!
