Grilled Glazed Peaches

Ever read a recipe and thought “….hmmm that could work …maybe.”  and the results were beyond your wildest imagination!?  That’s what we have here, my friends! 

.

.

I’ve been using the License to Grill cookbook a lot lately.  The recipes are so uniquely sophisticated I really don’t know what to do with myself.  But I know what you should do; do get to the nearest grocery or farmer’s market and pick yourself up some peaches and make this recipe – post HASTE!

Grilled Glazed Peaches

.

In a small saucepan over medium heat reduce by half:

1 Cup Balsamic Vinegar

It takes about 30 minutes – unless you’d like to speed things up and do it in the microwave.  Then add:

1/4 Cup Molasses

2 Tbsp Fresh Cracked Pepper Corns (ziploc and rolling pin work well)

Remove from heat.

.

Cut in half:

4-6 Peaches – leave skin on

remove stone and grill on cut side first for 3-4 minutes over medium heat.  Turn over then brush with glaze and let them grill another 3-4 minutes.  Place in serving dish and glaze again.

.

You’re in for a real treat!

    I love what caramelizing does to the flavor of fruit. Your addition of cracked black pepper makes me even happier. Thanks for a great post

    Oh wow balsamic vinegar? Really? I gotta try…that sounds really good.

    One of the smartest lesson I ever learned was to make a balsamic reduction and keep it in a squeeze bottle in the fridge for when just such an great recipe comes along.

      I have a squeeze bottle, but I’ve been putting my reduction in a tiny ziploc thingy. THANK YOU! I’m off to make the switch and a much larger batch because I couldn’t agree with you more!

    That does sound outstanding. Peaches are in down here so I’m going to head to the nearest orchard and get a fresh bushel! Thanks for a great post and gorgeous picture.

    How is it that I can not get enough grilled fruit in the summer? It’s so bad here that I’m even using a fish basket to grill even the tiniest fruits. Grill on!

    I’ve always wanted to grill peaches, but just never have done it – yet. These looks SO good and I love that they are glazed with balsamic *and* molasses!

    That looks really good. I am printing this up right now to try for a weekend barbeque coming up..

    The pictures look amazing.

    Looks delicious! I really like a recipe for Grilled Peaches with Pecorino and Proscuitto and make it often in the summertime. I wrote about it on my own blog at http://recipes-that-worked.blogspot.com/2010/07/for-love-of-peach-week-peaches-on-grill.html

    I’m not a huge fan of peaches. But I love the idea of them being grilled with balsamic vinegar. Yum!

    I haven’t cooked from License to Grill in a long time. I also love that book. These peaches look so good. I want some right now.

    Hi Mary – we’ve made this glaze a few times already this summer, thanks for the inspiration. It rocks!

      Thank YOU Lori! I left a comment on your blog too about Rouxbe from FoodBuzz reccomending reducing a bunch of balsamic vineger so that you can have it on hand. i put mine in a squeeze bottle in the fridge so it’s always at the ready.
