How To Grill Peaches & Why You Should Try It

Grilled peaches. Little bites of heaven. Sweet. Delicious. I don’t think there is a bad way to enjoy a grilled peach…well, unless you drop it through the grate of the grill and it gets burnt beyond recognition. Then maybe your grilled peach won’t be a sweet bite of deliciousness…it would be a burnt bite of…hmmm…I’m not sure. Let’s not try it. Because honestly, you do not want to waste these things of beauty.

Why do you want to try grilled peaches?

Simply put… they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

  • You can eat grilled peaches right off the grill. Let em cool down for a second so you don’t burn the roof of your mouth 😉
  • You can top your grilled peach with vanilla ice cream or yogurt for a sweet treat.
  • You can sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on your grilled peach.
  • You can added grilled peaches to your salads.
  • You can make grilled peaches the star of your salad, like in this Grilled Peach and Bacon (YES, BACON!) Salad.
  • You can top pork, chicken and steak with grilled peaches.
  • You can drizzle them with balsamic vinegar.

As you can see, grilled peaches are pretty darn versatile, you can make them sweet treats or add them to your savory dishes.

Why Grill Peaches

So, how do you grill peaches?

It’s so easy guys!

Ready for this?

Turn on the grill to medium heat.

Cut your peaches in half and remove the pits. You can cut them into smaller slices if you want, just use a grill topper so your peaches don’t fall through the cracks. That’s what I used when I made my grilled peach salad, I wanted smaller slices and I figured it would be easier to cut the peaches beforehand than when they were cooked.

Place your peach slices/halves into a bowl and drizzle in olive oil, gently stir so that the peaches get covered. You can brush the peaches too (be sure to brush both sides), I just found it easier to put them all in a bowl. Brushing the peaches with olive oil helps prevent sticking and won’t burn.

Place the cut side down on the grill and cook until the fruit has grill marks and starts to soften, approx 4 to 5 minutes depending on the size of your peaches.

If needed, turn them once and continue cooking for another 4 to 5 minutes. Do your best to resist moving them any more than necessary so you can get those pretty grill marks.

Once your peaches are done, they will be more tender, feel free to pull away the skin if desired. Personally, I love peach skin, so if you peel it off, save it for me 🙂

Grilling the peaches has the ability to elevate the sweetness. And it’s so simple!

Best grilled peaches

When you are ready to grill some peaches at home, look for peaches that are still a little firm, if they are too ripe, they will naturally have more sugar in them, which will make them easier to burn.
