Basic Recipe for Grilled Peaches
4 firm ripe Freestone Peaches with peel, halved or 
cut in wedges and pitted

Preheat the grill to medium-high. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place peaches
on the grill, flesh side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the flesh is
caramelized. Turn peaches over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Peaches should be soft and golden in color.

Optional sweet glaze for desserts
3 tbsp. salted butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla or a splash of dark rum
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Optional savory balsamic vinegar glaze
3 tbsp. white sugar
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. freshly ground black peppercorns

Heat glaze ingredients in a small saucepan until the glaze is thick and
syrupy, about 5 minutes. Baste peaches with the glaze before and during
grilling. Serve the peaches drizzled with the remaining glaze.
