I prepared these superb yet simple peaches for a lovely, quiet evening at home with my husband. They were incredibly and intensely flavorful and paired perfectly with our relaxed dinner on the back porch.


grilled peaches

3 tablespoons sugar

3/4 cup balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 fresh peaches with peel, halved and pitted

blue cheese wedges

In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together the sugar, balsamic vinegar and pepper. Simmer until liquid has reduced by one half. Remove from heat and set aside.

Heat grill for medium-high heat. Place peaches on the prepared grill, cut side down. Cook for about 5 minutes or until caramelized. Turn peaches over. Brush the top sides with the balsamic glaze and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.

Transfer the peach halves to individual serving dishes and drizzle with remaining glaze. Top with blue cheese.
