Now that grilling season is officially here, I’m excited to make all of my favorite outdoor meals. Ever since a couple years ago, my favorite thing to make on the grill has always been pizza, although my BBQ chicken and pineapple quesadillas come in at a close second. I really wanted to try a dessert on the grill this time though, and after seeing peaches in the grocery store, I couldn’t get them out of my head. Since hubby is the grill master around here, he helped me cook them while I made this simple syrup to pour over the top once they were ready. You can also top them with a number of different things: toasted almonds, pecans, whipped cream, ice cream…but we enjoyed them with the touch of extra sweetness from just the syrup. Happy grilling!
For the syrup:
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp rum
- 1/3 cup light agave nectar
For the peaches:
- 4 peaches, halved and pitted
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar, rum, and agave over medium-high heat until it begins to boil.
Let cook for 5 minutes or until reduced by about half, and the syrup becomes thick but still pourable. If it gets too thick, just add some water and cook down a little longer until you reach the right consistency.
Heat your grill to medium heat. Brush each of the peach halves with olive oil, and then place them cut side down on the grill.
Cook for 2-3 minutes without moving the peaches.
Drizzle the syrup over the peaches (and add extra toppings if you desire). Enjoy!
