Everyone can put sausages and steaks on the grill rack. After all, you can prepare a lot more with a grill. For example, delicious desserts. After all, not only grilled vegetables are a delicacy - many types of fruit can also be prepared in this way.
How about a grilled peach, for example? You can choose to make it completely sweet or really hearty. Of course, you can also just put the peach halves on the grill without any other ingredients. A little more refined, they taste even better. Just try our recipes and see for yourself.
But one thing first: It is important that you always use peaches for grilling, which are ripe but not too soft. If you use canned peaches, you must drain them well beforehand.
❖ Recipe 1 - the classic variant:
- 4 peaches
- neutral oil
Of course, peaches can always be prepared on the grill without any frills. Simply place aluminum foil or an aluminum grill tray on the grate and then oil well. Best with a neutral oil like corn oil. In addition, you can melt a little butter on it, because it refines the taste even more.
Then peel, halve and remove the seeds from the fresh peaches. Then place on the wire rack. You can either grill the peaches openly or you can seal the foil into a packet and let the peaches cook on the grill for 15 minutes. Thats all.
If you want, you can add some orange or lemon juice and honey to the peaches. A dash of orange liqueur or rum also go well with this.
❖ Recipe 2 - the sweet variant:
- 4 peaches
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tablespoon of melted butter
- 2 tbsp rum
- 2 tbsp almond slivers
- 8 cocktail cherries
First of all, dip the fresh peaches briefly in hot water so that they can be peeled more easily. Then halve after peeling and remove the seeds. Recommended reading: Multiply peaches with your own seeds.
Then sprinkle the inside of the peaches with a little lemon juice and let them steep for around 15 minutes. In the meantime, mix the melted butter and honey together in a small bowl.
Now lay aluminum foil on the grill rack and spread the peaches on it. Then leave the peaches on the grill until they turn slightly brown. Then turn over to the other side. Spread the honey and butter mixture over and over again.
When the peaches are grilled, arrange the halves with the bulge facing down on a plate. A cocktail cherry is then placed in each of the hollows. Then spread some rum and almond slivers over it. Vanilla ice cream and whipped cream also go very well with this.
❖ Recipe 3 - the savory variant:
- 6 stems of thyme
- 1 clove of garlic
- 120 g soft goat cheese
- 1 cup (250 g) sour cream
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 3 tsp olive oil
- fresh peaches or 1 can (850 ml) peach halves
- 1 - 2 tsp pink pepper berries
First wash the thyme and remove the leaves from the stems. Then finely chop the leaves. Peel and chop the clove of garlic. The goat cheese is best cut into small cubes.
Mix the sour cream with the lemon juice, olive oil, thyme, garlic and goat cheese to a smooth cream and season with salt and pepper. Peel the peaches and cut in half. On the other hand, drain canned peaches well.
Then grill the halves on the cut surface for about three minutes. Then pour the goat's cheese cream into a piping bag and then add a blob to each of the peach halves.
Then place the peach halves in an ovenproof baking dish and gratinate them in the oven for four minutes.
After arranging the peaches on a plate, you can then decorate them with sprigs of thyme and pink peppercorns and drizzle them with a little oil.
