Recipes With Grilled Peaches

Fresh peaches are already at their best, sweet, juicy, and tender, so the smallest effort transforms them into a delectable dessert. I love standing outside as they cook, soaking in the warm weather while it’s still here. When they’re done (they only take 3 minutes!), I scoop them off the grill, top them with vanilla ice cream, toasted nuts, and fresh herbs, and dig in.

There’s a time and place for rich cakes and fudgy brownies, but right now, grilled peaches are an unbeatable treat. If you’ve never had them, I hope you make them in the coming weeks. The grill enhances the peaches’ natural sweetness, makes them extra-juicy, and gives them a light smoky flavor.
