Grilled Honey Peaches With Mint

This recipe is so easy and simple its almost unfair to even call it a recipe, but it also happens to be incredibly delicious. During Fourth of July weekend I found some lonely peaches lying around the kitchen counter that were quite hard and that no one seemed to be eating. I wasn’t ready to let them go to waste and I knew that the tart I had just made and put in the oven wasn’t going to turn out quite as planned (baking has never been forté). So, I thought what better way to redeem myself than make a quick dessert thats fresh and light and that uses up the leftover fruit from the weekend? I could talk about the wonders of grilled fruit at length for quite some time, but I’ll spare you the boredom. In short, its a wonderfully delicious creation that is great way to use leftover or unwanted fruit and brings out the flavors of the fruit really nicely.  I just used what I had at the house for this one, but you could pair them with burrata as a lovely summer salad or plate them with fresh whipped cream or ice cream as a sweeter dessert, the possibilities are endless.  If you don’t have a grill you can easily use a grill pan instead, but it is important that you achieve both that grilled flavor and look somewhere.

Ingredients

  • 3 fresh peaches
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 3 tblsp honey
  • 4 tblsp fresh mint, chopped in a chiffonade

Directions

  1. Chop your peaches into halves, core them and then chop into quarters, theres no need to peel them.
  2. Drizzle the honey all over the peaches and toss, make sure every peach is perfectly glazed with honey.
  3. Using a Microplane, grate the zest of the lemon onto the peaches and toss again.
  4. Heat up your grill or pan and throw the peaches on once its very hot. Flip them once you see nice grill marks and caramelization.
  5. Place your peaches on a platter and generously distribute the chopped mint.

Can be served both hot or cold.

Enjoy!
