Dessert from the Grill

Dessert from the Grill 8/11/17Sizzling burgers, steaks, chops, and fish fillets are popular fare from outdoor grills, and grilled veggies seem to be becoming increasingly common, also.  But fruit, maybe not so much.  However, it certainly can be!

While you probably don’t think a lot about grilling fruit, here’s a recipe for a tasty little grill packet to make a delicious, “just peachy,” dessert you might like to start with.  The recipe only takes about 10 minutes to prepare, and 15-18 minutes to cook. Let me know how this goes over with you and your family!

Start by washing and halving 4 large peaches.  Remove the pits.  Place the peach halves cut side up on a piece of foil that will be large enough to be folded up and sealed to make a pouch.  Fill the hollow of each peach half with about 2 tablespoons of frozen blueberries, then sprinkle each one with about 2 teaspoons of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.  If desired, sprinkle on a little ground cinnamon.  Fold the edges up to meet, fold, and seal to make a pouch.  Place on a hot grill and cook for about 15-18 minutes, turning just once.  Open the pouch, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and serve right out of the foil pouch.
