Stone fruit season is the best! Growing up I’d just eat peaches or nectarines plain like you would an apple. But I’ve since become a bit more creative and when they are in season, you can bet that I’ll find a way to work them into just about everything I make! There’s nothing quite like a perfectly ripe piece of stone fruit. It’s tender and packed with flavor and makes for an excellent addition to just about everything. If you tune into snapchat today, I’m adding them into my favorite salad!

But if you’re really going for it – then you should GRILL your stone fruit! This recipe is for Grilled Peaches, but it’s the exact same for nectarines, yellow or white! You could also use apricots! Sky’s the limit. They get grilled which brings out the flavor even more and you get little caramelized bits that are like little pieces of happiness. Add to that a drizzle of honey, a sprinkle of sea salt and some ice cream – nothing can compare! Whip up some grilled peaches for your next backyard bash and tell me what you think!

  1. Looks good, Gaby, but have to say that the.most.delicious.dessert I have ever had in my entire life came about by accident. My son came for dinner one time carrying a basket of cling-free peaches which he had just brought from a friend’s fruit orchard. We did some shopping and made a great and varied seafood dinner and for dessert I peeled and sliced the peaches and topped them with Haagen-Dasz Vanilla Bean ice cream. It was PERFECT! We just moaned our way through it. Nothing special, right? Nope. However…

  2. Peaches are so tasty. I found the recipe in No Frill Grillin’ of Grilled Peaches and Ricotta topped with Honey Almond Sauce to be great – link is below for the kindle e-book. Hope you’ll try it. Love your blog!

  3. Oh my – this looks like a piece of heaven.
    My mother used to poach peaches in cointreau liqueur and serve with ice cream. Haven’t had a peach dessert since way back then. I will have to try these this weekend. The peaches are fabulous right now!

  4. Just happened on your blog and will try the peaches w family in town. Just wondered if you would share info about those blue dishes. They are beautiful!

  5. Hi Gaby! Do you have any tips on how to cut peaches in half/de-pit them? I tried to grill peaches a couple weekends ago – the peach halves would not separate from the pit and ended up a juicy squishy mess.

  6. Going to the Root Cellar here in Victoria, BC to buy some fresh Okanagan peaches so we can make this.
