grilled peaches

September 22nd, 2008 · 38 Comments

since i believe in the law of averages, and my last post was a novella (bless those of you that read…), i give to you the grilled peach in 100 words.

i sat these georgia beauties cut side down in some olive oil and then sprinkled them with a good flakey salt. after a trip to the grill, my peaches were dressed with creme fraiche, tasmanian honey and some pan toasted almonds.  because it’s what was here. 

it seems like all the cool people are using mascarpone and pistachios.  but let me tell you, this was truly not shabby. 

at all.

(inspired by proud italian cook)

    Small portions of fabulous quality.

    These sound perfect tasty and just simple flavors that make this such a wonderful dessert or yummy treat.

    I’m grilling peaches this week…I’ve seen too many people doing this.

    I wish you showed off the grill marks.

    These look delicious! The cool people are grilling fruit too (though not noticed often enough — thanks for doing your part). And good for you for snatching the last of the summer fruit!

  • 5 Julie // Sep 23, 2008 at 6:17 am

    How perfect is that? I love these kind of simple things to do to fruit that enhances the fruit but doesn’t make it into something else entirely as making it into a tart or a crisp would.

    Gorgeous, and thoroughly delicious, I’m sure. I never got around to grilling peaches this summer, for some reason. You’ve inspired me to try this weekend, if they’re still out at the farmers’ market.

  • 7 jim voorhies // Sep 23, 2008 at 8:03 am

    That looks remarkable.

    yum. i should try to restrict my posts to poetry as this one is….

  • 9 aforkfulofspaghetti // Sep 23, 2008 at 10:36 am

    Good stuff. Who cares about being cool? Be a ground-breaker instead…

  • 10 Brittany // Sep 23, 2008 at 11:04 am

    I would feel like a princess eating that. I’m so with you on the creme fraiche thing. It has more tang than mascarpone… and I’m all about the tang.

  • 11 Jack // Sep 23, 2008 at 11:49 am

    Simple, yet the crème fraiche and honey give it just a touch of sophistication. Coming from the same neighborhood in the plant kingdom, Almonds are a natural complement to peaches. If someone cooked that for me I would be so beside myself. I would hope she let me eat two!

  • 12 cookiecrumb // Sep 23, 2008 at 11:53 am

    Grilled peaches are this year’s Tickle Me Elmo. Hot.
    I would use creme fraiche and almonds too, so there.

  • 13 any little reason // Sep 23, 2008 at 12:28 pm

    Just made grilled peaches last week and my husband has asked for them twice since then. Shows that the simplest things are often the most desirable…

  • 14 Hillary // Sep 23, 2008 at 3:32 pm

    I can’t believe you just threw that together. It looks amazing! I think that beats mascarpone and pistachios if you ask me.

  • 15 Marie // Sep 23, 2008 at 5:44 pm

    Sounds wonderful! Ill be trying your version soon, and I love the sound of that tasmanian honey, never heard of it!
    You’ve inspired me!

  • 16 NOBLE PIG // Sep 23, 2008 at 5:50 pm

    It looks like divine intervention.

  • 17 Lauren // Sep 23, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    how very short and sweet!

  • 18 Nicole // Sep 23, 2008 at 7:44 pm

    I love peaches. Looks good.

  • 19 The Italian Dish // Sep 23, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    You hit one out of the ballpark, I think. Simple, classic, perfect.

  • 20 robin @ caviar and codfish // Sep 23, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    I want.


  • 21 lifeinrecipes // Sep 24, 2008 at 7:32 am

    Peaches and almonds trump peaches and pistachios any day. Scrumptious.

  • 22 Kim // Sep 24, 2008 at 12:02 pm

    So all I need to do is cook with pistachios and mascarpone and I would be cool? Looks like I miss out again being in the it crowd, as creme fraiche and almonds would be my choice-even though I have it all on hand.
    The simplest desserts are the best, and grilled peaches is one of them.

  • 23 Donald // Sep 24, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    That is nice.

    How do you eat it. With the way it looks, I don’t think you want to disturb it.

  • 24 Lynn // Sep 24, 2008 at 2:21 pm

    Dammitalltohell! I need peaches, marscapone and some fancy, dancy honey for dessert tonight!

    I’ve met the Tommy Noodle. And it was good!!!!

  • 25 phillygirl64 // Sep 24, 2008 at 4:07 pm

    I’d skip the almonds, but other than that, this looks terrific

  • 26 Biz // Sep 24, 2008 at 4:26 pm

    That looks great – we had fresh strawberries on the side of our dinner last night, and since the coals were still hot, I thought, can I grill fruit?

    Now I know!

  • 27 evil chef mom // Sep 24, 2008 at 4:32 pm

    millions of peaches, peaches for me, million of peaches, peaches for free.

  • 28 Sara // Sep 24, 2008 at 9:36 pm

    Your peaches look delicious!

  • 29 chefectomy // Sep 24, 2008 at 9:47 pm

    That’s awfully sexy.

  • 30 democommie // Sep 25, 2008 at 8:35 am

    Good Morning:

    Wow, I don’t got no creme fraiche, but I do use yohgurt (I recommend the whole milk, really, really fat cow, whole milk stuff).

    This may sound like heresy, but I like putting peaches on the grill right after I’ve grilled pork chops or sausage and serving them as an accompaniment. If loving that is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

    Grilled peaches, oh how I love thee. I love thee with blue cheese and chicken in a quesadilla. I love thee with ice cream, or with brie.

    I gotta get my hands on some good, juicy peaches.

  • 33 We Are Never Full // Sep 26, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    ’nuff said. simple as that.

  • 34 Peter // Sep 27, 2008 at 4:53 pm

    Everything Heather says sounds dirty. I’m making peach chutney soon. Maybe I should grill them first…

  • 35 Wendy French // Sep 29, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. As you can probably tell, I’ve been admiring your site for some time now. You never fail to inspire me.

    Thank heaven for those bacon candles!

  • 36 Mari // Sep 30, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    Why oh why, aren’t there any good peaches where I live?!

  • 37 Biz // Oct 1, 2008 at 3:11 pm

    I just grilled peaches for the first time over the weekend – but I added really good vanilla bean ice cream to mine. Almonds would have been a good touch – didn’t think of it!

    Greets! Really funny. keep working! Tnx! Saw!

    One thing I would like to discuss is that wehigt loss program fast may be accomplished by the correct diet and exercise. Ones size not just affects the look, but also the complete quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorder, health risks, and physical abilities are impacted in wehigt gain. It is possible to make everything right and still gain. In such a circumstance, a problem may be the offender. While an excessive amount food and never enough workout are usually guilty, common medical ailments and traditionally used prescriptions can certainly greatly add to size. Thanks a bunch for your post in this article.
