To go with yesterday’s profile piece on Red Tomato, I wanted to share a recipe for grilled stone fruit. I know first hand that Red Tomato’s Eco Peaches are very tasty this year, and delicious in this recipe. What better way to get your summer grilling on than a little grilled sustainable Eco Peaches????
A quick search on Google will provide you with an almost endless list of recipes for grilled peaches that are pitted and grilled as halves. However, frequently I cannot for the life of me get the pit out of the peach as perfectly as some of the gazillion and ten recipes online. They look perfect, yummy and ever so photogenic. Reality for me is something more like this…
So, when life gives you cling fruit, make grilled sliced peaches. You can use sliced peaches alone, or you go all fancy schmancy and use a combination of sliced peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, or any stone fruit. (In the picture above I’ve used peaches, plums and cherries. In the picture with the recipe I’ve used just peaches.)
Using a simple grill pan makes this as easy as grilling hotdogs. I’m almost embarrassed to share this recipe because it’s just about as simple as: 1) cut the fruit, 2) grill the fruit, 3)eat the fruit.
Almost, but not exactly. I manage to gussy it up by tossing the fruit with a small handful of sugar before grilling and a glug of almond liqueur after grilling. There’s not a lot of liqueur in this mind you. I eat this stuff for breakfast on top of a bagel with cream cheese so it’s no boozy dessert! Just a touch to give the peaches (and possibly plums and cherries) that amazing almond flavor that they crave for and taste so amazing with. Enjoy!
