Grilled Georgia Peaches and Ice Cream from quick-dish.tablespoon.com
- 4 ripe but firm peaches
- ¼ cup dark brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Vanilla bean ice cream
- Clean grill grate and preheat grill to high.
- Wash and quarter peaches, leaving skin on and removing pits. In a large bowl, toss peach quarters, brown sugar and vanilla until all peaches are coated. Let sit 15 minutes until coating is caramel. Toss again to coat evenly
- Place peach slices on grill, skin side up. Cook for 3-4 minutes, reducing heat as necessary to avoid burning. Turn peaches (still skin side up) to cook the other fleshy side for another 3-4 minutes, or until grill marks are visible and peaches are cooked.
- Remove peaches from grill and cool before adding to ice cream. Serve with a large scoop of vanilla bean ice cream surrounded by 4 grilled peach slices. Garnish as desired (whipped cream, mint sprig, etc.).
