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:
Vanilla Ice Cream
First take your peaches & wash them well.
I 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.
