Peaches are still available in some states through mid-September. Some grocery stores are still displaying fresh peaches in the produce section and some farmer market stands are still selling them. Here is a very basic peach recipe from The Culinary Institute of America Cookbook. Yes, it’s from the CIA but it is simple.
Grilled Peaches with Ice cream and Raspberry (or strawberry) Coulis
1/4 c granulated sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
4 c French vanilla ice cream
1 c Raspberry Coulis
Pit peaches and cut into ½ inch thick slices
Preheat gas grill to high. (If charcoal grill build fire then let it burn down until coals are glowing red with a light coating white ash, even out coals and clean grate.)
Toss peaches with sugar and lemon juice.
Grill over direct heat until tender in the middle about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Dish out ice cream and top with the peaches
Raspberry Coulis (Optional)
Grilled peaches over ice cream make a nice dessert but if you want a sauce, add a berry coulis
1 c fresh or frozen raspberries or strawberries
½ c granulated sugar
1 Tbs lemon juice
Combine coulis ingredients
Simmer in a saucepan and stir until sugar dissolves
Strain through a fine mesh sieve
Add more sugar or lemon juice if desired.
Serve as a sauce for the peach-ice cream dessert.
