Grilled GA Peaches

It's peach season - so you can bet your ass I've been making hay with these tasty monsters in every way imaginable.  One of my favorites?  Glad you asked.

Grilled Peaches.

Grilling a ripe peach creates a nice caramelized char which really accentuates the natural sugar in the fruit.  It makes for a simple (and light) dessert - which is often what I crave in the hot Southern summer months.  Instead of ice cream - I go with non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt.  Again, it's a healthy substitution that delivers.

Here's a quick recipe I threw together tonight - excuse the indoor lighting on the photo!

Grilled GA Peaches + Greek Yogurt 
(Prep 5 mins, Cook 10 mins, Serves 4)

4 Ripe GA Peaches
1 Tablespoon Butter
2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Dollap Non-Fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt
2 Tablespoons Local Honey

Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.   Meanwhile, slice peaches lengthwise and use a spoon to dig out the pits.  Lightly grease grill grates with butter - add peaches, cut side down to the grill for 2 minutes.  After 2 minutes, turn the peaches 45 degrees, and cook for another 1 - 2 minutes.  Flip peaches, sprinkle evenly with sugar and cinnamon, and move to indirect heat - keep grill covered until sugar mixture is melted.  Remove peaches and plate alongside Greek yogurt - finish with a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.  Serve.
