Easy grilled peaches recipe with cinnamon and ice cream for the win. Grilled peaches are the perfect dessert for any summer or fall day.
Growing up, I ate peaches and bbq all the time. My parents’ bbq’d so often each summer I got tired of it. Nowadays, I have to admit I really miss those moments. However, my parents never made grilled peaches for my siblings and me. Grilled peaches are definitely one of the yummiest desserts that the entire family can enjoy. Have I already mentioned how easy it is to make?
What kind of peaches are best for grilling
Well, this question can be complicated if you make it out to be. I think any peach that is firm to the touch is the best peach for grilling. Try to buy fresh produce when they are in season. Download the Seasonal Food Guide App. It tells you what products you should be buying based on the time of year and your geography. In addition, I think it’s best to buy local when you can. Get online and google ‘Farmers Markets Near Me’ to find local produce. Oftentimes, the produce from the farmer’s markets is much cheaper and organic. However, some farmers don’t have the money for the organic certification so the word ‘Organic’ may not be displayed. You can ask them, see if you can try a sample, & judge for yourself.
Do peaches need to be ripe to grill
Your peaches should be ripe but still firm when you hold the peach in your hand. If your peach is too ripe it may turn to mush while on the grill.

How do you cut a peach in half on the grill
I suggest cutting the peach prior to placing the peach on the grill. Place the peach on its side and hold it with a firm hand. Find the natural seam that runs end-to-end and insert a knife in the peach. I continue to cut the peach in large sections until there isn’t much left but the pit. After that, I cut the large sections of the peach into wedges like in the first image.
How to cut the peach in half
Use a sharp knife along the peach seam to halve it and remove the pit.
