Grilled Peaches Recipe (Naked)

Grilled peaches recipe

This grilled peaches recipe is all you need. The “naked” part is that you can serve them without any toppings (don’t grill naked)!

I fell in love with peaches when I lived in Athens, Georgia. Georgia is a peachy place.

There wasn’t a roadside stand I wouldn’t stop at if there were buckets of peaches. I don’t know how many I ate over my five years in Georgia, but I am sure they lost money when I left.

Chez Panisse, a very expensive restaurant in Berkeley, California, famously served a naked peach as dessert. There are peaches that don’t need any adulteration to be the absolute perfect, sweet food.

Grilling peaches can make them even more perfect (if that is possible). I have been grilling healthy food all summer. Check out my how to cook vegetables on the grill post and my and how to grill watermelon post to help you move past hamburgers and hot dogs.

Now is your moment to buy peaches. Go get them and if you can hold off from eating them immediately, you should grill them.

I make sure my grill is clean from whatever else I have been grilling. I heat the grill for about 10 minutes on high and then I scrub it with a ball of aluminum foil using tongs. I toss the peaches on and my family waits impatiently – “Peaches done yet?”.

The cooked peach explodes with flavor and the texture is like pudding. I serve them with whipped cream or nothing at all.

Sometimes, I used these as a side for whatever else I am grilling and they work with savory food. Also, I refrigerate them and eat them with yogurt for breakfast (if they make it that long).

I have found flats of peaches at Trader Joe’s and Costco and I don’t hesitate to buy them. If you can’t eat them fast enough, put them in the fridge so that they ripen more slowly.

Have you tried grilled peaches?

I love grilled peaches too and serve them along side grilled meats. In the morning however, I enjoy my peach cooked in the microwave. I slice the peach in half, remove the pit, place it in a bowl, and then micrwave it on high for 15 seconds or up to a minute, depending on the size of the peach and weather I'm having a half or the whole peach. A few blueberries sprinkled along is quite nice also. A dollop of plain greek yogurt & a sprinkle of granola... yum!

Never tried to grill them before and Karen, I like your idea. Will definitely try both.

This looks fantastic! I can't wait to try them. I too lived in Athens, Georgia, for several years (master's from UGA), and have vivid memories of picking AMAZING peaches with my roommates. We ate so many while we were picking we were stuffed for the rest of the day. I've been a huge peach fan ever since.

Peaches are one of my very favorites - such that I grow them in my backyard. I also microwave them, add a little bit of splenda brown sugar and I'm in heaven! Thanks for the grill idea.

I adore peaches, my absolute favourite way to eat them is cooked on my griddle & then chopped up & served with cottage cheese inside half a charantais melon, wonderful as a lunch & surprisingly very filling. 🙂
