Peaches take to the grill like fish to water. The quick cooking over live flames brings out their natural juiciness and intensifies their deep summer sweetness.
  1. Start with peaches (any type will do!) that are firm with just a little give when you give them a gentle squeeze with your whole hand.
  2. Cut the peaches in half and pit them. You can grill entire peach halves or cut them into wedges. Peeling the peaches isn't necessary for the grill, but you certainly can peel them, if you like.
  3. Brush the cut side(s) of the peaches with a neutral-tasting oil, like grapeseed or canola.
  4. Cook the peaches over a medium fire on all cut sides until grill marks show and the peaches are tender but not falling apart.

Serve grilled peaches plain (they are particularly yummy alongside grilled pork) or in salads (this salad is a favorite). Or turn them into a delicious dessert by pairing them with cool yogurt, whipped cream, or with scoops of ice cream.
