So it's definitely the end days of the summer growing season, which means gardens and orchards are bursting with fresh produce and fruits that are simply amazing. I'm especially excited about the orchards as this is the first year I'm actually enjoying stone fruit.
My parents picked up some fabulous peaches last week and sent a few juicy ones over to my house to enjoy. Wow - I had completely forgotten how fantastic they were! I wanted to do something fun with them and thought grilling them might be good.
Seriously, these are amazing. There are only 4 ingredients and it literally takes about 5 minutes to throw together and grill. These would be a wonderful dessert and fabulous ending to a end-of-summer cookout or dinner. Although I've topped them with a bit of creme fraiche whipped with a tiny bit of honey, these would be fantastic served with vanilla ice cream. The ground chipotle chili adds just *touch* of heat, so don't be afraid to give it a try.
Chipotle-Coriander Grilled Peaches
4 large peaches, washed
1/4 c light brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground chipotle powder
1/4 tsp ground coriander
Slice peaches into 1/4" thick slices. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, chipotle, and coriander. Sprinkle a substantial amount of brown sugar mixture on peaches and pat onto slices until coated. Repeat with remaining slices. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat and grill peaches, 2-3 minutes each side. Serve immediately.
