I am not a grilling expert. In fact, grills and fire kind of freak me out a little. (Explosions!!!) However this picture of my grilled creation got a strong reaction from Facebook friends, so here ya go.
**2 peaches cut in half, skin on, pit removed
**Lets say a cup of blueberries
**1 TBSP brown sugar
**a dollop of lemon juice or orange juice if you’ve got it. All good if you don’t.
This is a pretty basic way to grill dessert. You can dump it on ice cream, shortcake, brownies, or let it cool and just eat it straight. I suppose you could add chia seeds and milk to the final product and chill some chia pudding overnight.
I use my small cast iron skillet, peaches face down on the brown sugar, add blueberries. When I start the grill, I sit this on the back rack and just leave it while I deal with whatever the “main course” is. By the time I incinerate chicken kebobs into charcoal nuggets or set a hamburger on fire -true story, the fruit concoction is all juicy and bubbly. I think of it terms of pie filling. When your pie is done, the fruit filling should be bubbling up through the crust vents. Once it cools, you can literally pull the skins of the peaches!
Peaches and blueberries are my favorite summer fruit combo; I also use it for pies. I have not tried any other fruit variations on the grill. However after the jalapeno and strawberry mixture at yoga, I did add a diced up jalapeno to the peaches and blueberries this week. I got a little heat. Not bad.
Try your own variations. Enjoy.
