A perfect way to use up extra peaches too. We can all agree that peaches are delicious, but it’s a good idea to know which ones are ripe and ready to use for this grilled cinnamon-brown sugar peaches dessert.

What is the best way to pick the right peach?

Peaches should give off a sweet aroma, appear rosy-colored and round, and have a slightly soft feel to them (not too firm, not too squishy). If they smell too strong, or collapse in when pressed, they are far too ripe.

How to grill peaches:

  • Preheat your grill for 400 degrees F or medium-high heat.
  • Wash your peaches, and gently pat the skins dry with paper towels.
  • Cut each peach in have lengthwise and remove the pit.
  • Combine your cinnamon-sugar mixture in a small bowl. Set aside.-Brush a little oil on the flesh side of each peach half.
  • Place onto the grill cut-side down, and let them cook for 3-4 minutes
  • Turn them over, and fill each peach half with a little cinnamon-sugar mixture. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until the sugar starts to melt.
  • Promptly remove from heat, and plate with a scoop or two of ice cream.
