4 Minute Dessert: Grilled Peaches!

There is nothing better than biting into a fresh, ripe peach! The sweet, juicy flavor reminds you time and time again of why summertime is one of the best times of year. While peaches are great on their own, why not pair them with another summertime favorite? Grilling.

This recipe isn’t even a recipe at all, its a quick tip on how to enhance the flavor of your peaches in a matter of minutes! Baste your grill with canola oil, halve your peaches (remove the pit) and toss them on two minutes per a side. That’s it.

It’s so easy we grilled peaches up right inside our store for Owner Appreciation Days, and they were a major hit. For whatever you plan to grill up tonight, peaches make the perfect companion.

Add some extra flavor to your grilled peaches with these delicious pairings:

  1. Vanilla Ice Cream. You can never go wrong with a hot and cold combination like this one. Keep your ice cream flavor simple so you can savor every sugary morsel of that peach.
  2. Prairie Breeze Cheese. This cheddar-esque cheese matches the sweetness of the peaches while adding a little nuttiness to the mix. Let the cheese melt a bit on your peach before diving in.
  3. Honey. Drizzle some honey over your peaches right as they come off the grill. The added all natural sweetness will keep you from craving cookies later on!
  4. Amish Blue Cheese. This takes grilled peaches from dessert to a great appetizer! Blue cheese adds creaminess and flavor to the already flavor-full peaches.
