Grilled Peaches and Ice Cream for a Hot Summer Treat

GRILLED PEACHES WITH APRICOT JAM AND ICE CREAM

Visit any local farmers’ market during the Summer and you are sure to see a huge display of fresh, juicy peaches. This recipe for Grilled Peaches is perfect for those warm summer evening sugar cravings.
Choose peaches that are ripe, but not too soft. A bit of firmness will help the peaches stand up to the hot grill.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 to 5 peaches, halved
  • 5 tablespoons butter, salted
  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 pint vanilla bean ice cream
  • ½ cup granola, crushed
  • nonstick spray
  • fresh mint or basil, for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Allow the butter to turn a medium-brown color. As soon as you smell a nutty aroma, remove from heat.  Pour into a bowl. Whisk in the apricot jam, vanilla, nutmeg, and allspice.

Fire up the grill, or grill pan. Clean out just a bit of the inner flesh of the pitted peach halves. Spray the grill grate with non-stick spray. Place the peaches skin-side down and grill for about two to three minutes. Flip and allow the flesh side to gather perfect grill markets. Two minutes, at best.
Place the peaches on a serving platter, flesh side up. Spoon on a bit of the apricot brown butter mixture. Top each with a spoonful of ice cream.  Sprinkle with crushed granola. Garnish with fresh basil or mint leaves. Drizzle the entire platter with any remaining butter mixture.
ENJOY!
