Grilled peaches with a balsamic reduction (inspired by The Perfect Pantry)
5 peaches, halved and pitted
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp honey (or agave nectar)
Place foil on grill (or, if your grill is very clean, skip this step). Spray peaches with olive oil and place on the foil. Grill over very low heat until the peaches are very tender and beginning to fall apart (about 20 min). While peaches are cooking, heat vinegar and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat until the mixture reduces by about half. Drizzle this over the peaches. Serves 5.
This was fabulous, and is one of my new favorite desserts. The peaches developed a great flavor after being grilled, and this contrasted fabulously with the acidic (and slightly sweet) reduction. I have a feeling that I will be making this over and over once peaches are available in Michigan.
Another honey giveaway!!
To celebrate another great recipe that I made with tupelo honey, I'm going to give away 2 more bottles. Tupelo honey is fantastic because it has a great mellow flavor and never crystallizes (see my previous giveaway for more info). So, leave me a comment about your favorite thing to do with peaches or honey, and I will randomly pick 2 winners who will each receive one squeeze bottle of tupelo honey from Florida. I'll do the drawing at 5 pm (Eastern time) on Sunday, June 7, and unfortunately I'll have to limit this to U.S. residents. Make sure to leave me your email address if you don't have a blog so that I can contact you. Good luck!!
