How is everyone this fine day? I’m doing FAN-tastic, as I get to spend some QT (Quality Time) with one of my close friends this weekend! I’m going to relax down the shore and spend some time with some awesome people and eat some delicious food. Can’t get much better than that, am I right? Well, maybe if we include this week’s recipe into this weekend’s extravaganza: Grilled Peaches!
This is a fabulous dessert that has an awesome combination of hot and cold, as well as a creamy texture from the ricotta, that is sure to have people asking for seconds.
Below are ze ingredients you will need for this easy summer dessert:
1 Peach – halved and pitted
1/2 tsp honey
Dash of cinnamon
1 T. Ricotta
1 Mint leaf
First, turn on the grill to get the grate heated up. Next, cut the peach in half lengthwise and remove the pit. Take a piece of aluminum foil and place the halved peach cut side down and then wrap the foil a bit around the peaches.
Just a Little Tip (JLT): You don’t need to enclose the aluminum packet, as we aren’t trying to fully steam the peaches. Just turn the edges of the aluminum foil up. I happened to be a tad overzealous with my aluminum foil for this recipe and just happened to have excess.
Put the peaches, in the aluminum foil, onto the grill and let cook for about 5 minutes, or until soft. The size and ripeness of your peach will effect this time.
JLT: You will want to ensure that your peach is ripe, otherwise it won’t cook properly and then you’ll be cursing me.
Once the peach has been cooked, take off of the grill and then plate, or in this case bowl. (Not that kind of bowl… Unless you’re into that sort of thing, at which point, who the hell am I to judge.) I layered mine with the cut side up, put a teaspoon of ricotta, some cinnamon, drizzled honey and then garnished with a mint leaf.
If you are anything like me when I inhaled this, people are going to have to watch their fingers if they try to grab for another one.
I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for following along with me on Stark Naked Cooking! I look forward to seeing you next Friday for our next recipe!
