I love grilling out and often when I grill, I like to place vegetables on the grill to go with the meat. And since the grills hot, why not add some fruit to have for desert. And of my favorite fruits are peaches. Grilled is one of my favorite ways (others than sliced and served Ala-mode) to eat peaches.. Grilling peaches is not really that hard, but they need to be firmly ripe as opposed to mellow (Ripe and almost over ripe). Select peaches that are somewhat firm and not soft or mushy. these are best for grilling.
To begin, slice the peaches in half and remove the pit. Make sure all the pieces of the pit are removed.
After you are finished grilling the meats and vegetables, place the peach halves flesh side down on the grill directly over the flames. the peach juice will caramelize and seal the juice in. Don't worry if the peach has a little scorching, it adds to the flavor, but don't allow them to burn. after only a few minutes, turn the peach over so the flesh (seared) side is face up. the "fuzzy:" side will not need to grill as long but you can decide how well you wan them cooked.
Serve the peaches right off the grill or you can place a scoop of Ice-cream on top and drissel with caramel syrup. Either way there's no wrong way to eat them, Enjoy
