  • 4 medium Peaches (halved and pitted)

  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar

  • 4 tablespoons Butter (softened)

  • 4 ounces Ricotta Cheese

  • Freshly-cracked Black Pepper, to taste (and to add a kick!)

  • Balsamic vinegar, to taste

Preheat the grill (Emma used a cast iron grill skillet.)  It should be piping hot (not just slightly warm)!

Spread the softened butter over the cut side of the peaches, which will become a “glue” for the brown sugar.

On a plate, stir the brown sugar and black pepper together. Dip the buttered peaches into the mix.

Grill the peaches for 4 – 5 minutes each side. Make sure not to char the fruit too much while ensuring there are nice, smoky grill marks.

Flip the peaches and grill for an additional 1 – 2 minutes.

Serve, cut-side up.

*Emma paired the peaches with soft ricotta cheese, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, and brown sugar for crunch. Feel free to spice it up with your own decadent additions! A tad of goat cheese? Baby spinach?Caramelized walnuts? Fresh whipped cream? Creamy vanilla ice cream?
