GRILLED PEACHES IN BALSAMIC GLAZE

i hope all of my stateside friends had a wonderful holiday celebration yesterday!  mine was not traditional- it was a spa day and dinner with some great friends in lieu of grilling and beach time but i wouldn’t have had it any other way!  and today i offer up these grilled peaches, the easiest summer treat in town.  tis the season for peaches and if you hadn’t guess, i cannot get enough!  have an amazing weekend friends, i’ll see you back here next week with all sorts of goodness!  xx- sarah  {more after the jump}

INGREDIENTS:

4 ripe peaches

1 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar (high quality)

1 tablespoon honey

1 can full fat coconut milk, refrigerated over night

5 teaspoons lavender sugar (or other sweetener)

chopped walnuts to garnish

 

METHOD:

-  you’ll want to make the balsamic glaze a little ahead of time if possible, this will give it a chance to thicken up a bit.  to prepare, combine honey and balsamic in a medium weight pan and bring to a boil.  reduce heat to a simmer and cook until it becomes thicker and syrupy- 15-25 minutes.  remove from heat and set aside.

 

- prep peaches by coating both sides of the halves in grapeseed oil

- heat grill or grill pan to medium/low

- place peaches on grill and cook covered, roughly 3-4 minutes on each side, until they’re soft and have grill marks

- while peaches are cooking combine the solid part of the coconut milk with the lavender sugar.  beat with a hand mixer on high until the consistency of whipped cream is achieved (should only take a minute or so!)

- serve warm peaches with a dollop of whipped cream, a light drizzle of balsamic and chopped walnuts to garnish

- enjoy!

    Yum! This sounds awesome, we had grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream for dinner last night! I love the touch of balsamic though, add a little sour to the sweetness, also makes for some lovely pictures! Do you mind sharing what kind of camera you use?

    Oh these look good! And easy. I've never heard of lavender sugar but I'm going to see if I can find it here in the UK!
