Recipe from cookbook Grilling
- Food Writers' Favorites,
edited by Barbara Gibbs Ostmann and Jane Baker. Recipe by Clara H.
Eschmann, Food Columnist for The Macon Telegraph. Clara says, "My father was a peach farmer, so naturally our family enjoyed this
delicious fruit prepared in a variety of ways. My mother used to bake peaches in the oven,
but modern cooks grill them. These grilled peaches are especially good as a side dish with poultry, ham, or
pork, or they can be served as an easy dessert."

Yields: 8 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Grill time: 20 min
8 firm and ripe peaches
48 whole cloves
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup granulated
Mint sprigs for garnish
Barbecue grill. Lightly spray grill with oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Carve an
on bottom of each peach. Immerse peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove and
immediately plunge into ice water. When cooled, gently pull off skin with a paring knife.
Stick 6 whole cloves into each peach. In a small bowl,
combine cinnamon and sugar; roll peaches in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place each peach,
stem-side down, on a square of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Sprinkle remaining sugar-cinnamon
mixture over peaches; tightly close foil around each peach.
Place packets on gas grill over low heat or on charcoal
grill 5 to 6 inches from coals. Cook approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through.
Remove packets from grill. Carefully open packets and remove and discard cloves. The
peaches are so juicy, it's a good idea to open each packet in a serving bowl in order to
capture all the juice. Serve hot or cold as a side dish, or with ice cream, if desired,
NOTE: Grilled peaches freeze well or can be refrigerated for
use within a week.
