Grilled peaches are a tasty way to end a barbecue.
You Will Need
* A grill
* A steel brush
* A clean cloth
* Vegetable oil
* Lemon juice
* Ice cream or whipped cream
Step 1: Clean the grill
Clean the grill so the fruit doesn't stick. For a charcoal grill, light some coals; with a gas grill, set it on high and close the lid. After about 20 minutes, let the grill cool. Then scrape off the burnt-on bits with a steel brush, and end by wiping down the grill with a clean cloth soaked in vegetable oil.
Step 2: Heat the grill
Heat a gas or electric grill to medium. If it's a charcoal grill, wait until the coals are ash-colored.
Step 3: Prepare the peaches
Wash the peaches, cut them in half, and remove their pits.
All stone fruits do well on the grill, so consider grilling nectarines and apricots as well.
Step 4: Coat the peaches
Toss the peach halves in a mixture of about two parts sugar to one part lemon juice until they're fully coated. Let them stand for about five minutes, while the peaches absorb the sugar and juice mixture.
Step 5: Put them on the grill
Grill the peaches until they have golden brown marks, about three minutes per side on a hot grill.
Step 6: Serve as dessert
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
Fact: Peaches are native to Asia.
