Grilled peaches with rosemary


I have so many peaches right now. The tree is loaded and they all seem to ripen at once.

I made these grilled peaches. They are OH SO good!  

The recipe is adapted from a Jamie Oliver recipe from a magazine from a few years ago. Our local library has magazines of all sorts to borrow, so I have been taking advantage of that, I can't get enough of looking through food mags. This way I can do it for free!

The original recipe used a vanilla bean and a dash of brandy. You could use them if you have them. He suggested you serve them with crumbled biscotti and creme fraiche, which would be awesome. I think some toasted almond slivers would be nice too :)

Grilled peaches with rosemary
6 peaches, halved and stones removed
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 rosemary sprigs

Arrange the peaches in a baking dish, cut side up.

Mix the vanilla essence with the juice of an orange and pour over the peaches.

Scatter the zest and the sugar over. Lay the rosemary over the top.

Place the dish under a hot grill for 5-6 minutes or until fruit is golden and the juices are bubbling.

  2. Wow! What a striking combination. I would never have thought to add rosemary to anything other than a main.

  4. These look AMAZING! Oh so delicious... I love peaches. I wonder if cointreau might be a better accompaniment than brandy? I do miss having fruit trees♥

  7. YUMMY! I love peaches. I think adding the brandy would finish it off nicely. I do like that you served them with a dollop of ice cream.:)

    1. That is actually a dollop of whipped cream. Ice cream would work a treat too :)

  13. Sometimes I wish I was one of those awesome people (aka you!) who loved to cook....growing up in a house with meat and 3 veg 7 nights a week, cooking is not really in my genes! (and when cooking for one, well that's just boring! lol)

  14. Peaches ... oh I am a little envious. These look delicious but the fact that they are home grown makes them sound even more delicious.

    1. I am bombarded with peaches from that one tree every year. Sometimes I feel like I am swimming in peaches. These were absolutely delish done like this, especially the sticky sauce at the bottom of the pan!
