Grilled Peaches
20 Min Serves 4


  • 4 ripe, medium sized peaches
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 40g dark brown sugar


  • You can even try these with Sunday roast pork instead of apple sauce!


  1. 01. Cut the peaches in half, removing the pit.
  2. 02. Mix together the extracts and sugar and toss them in a bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to macerate.
  3. 03. Preheat a griddle or a BBQ on medium-high heat and griddle the peaches for about 3 mins.
  4. 04. Serve simply with frozen yogurt, mascarpone or ice cream with crushed hazelnuts, pistachios, almonds or amoretti biscuits.
  5. 05. Tip – You can make stock syrup by boiling 500g water and 500g caster sugar for 2 mins then leave to cool. Add the peaches to a sterilized jar along with the stock syrup and they will last for months and make great Christmas presents. You can add festive spices to the syrup for more flavour too. Vanilla, orange, cinnamon all work well.
