Grilled Dessert After You Enjoyed Your Grilled Ribs, Steaks, or Whatever
Usually after a session of grillin' meat and whatever there are usually enough hot coals in the pit to do something with beside just let 'em burn down. Seems a waste of good material to just let 'em burn away into ash, so I came up with a good use for all them hot coals. Make your dessert with them. Yep, you can grill your dessert right there while you are gulpin' down your grilled vittles, whatever. Of course, in the good ol' summertime, there is lots of good stuff to make dessert out of. How about some grilled peach halves, or even pear or apple halves? Anyway, here is how to do some peaches.
How to do what ya' gotta' do to do it:
All this can be done the day before or just before you start grillin' your main meal.
Ya'll will need four nice ripe peaches for enough dessert for four kinfolk, whoever.
Halve the peaches and remove the pit. Use the juice from one lime to sprinkle over the peaches, to keep them from discoloring, besides giving them a little extra kick. Cover and set them in the frig while you mix some coating for them. In a small bowl, mix together ¼ cup cider vinegar and ¼ cup honey and coat the peach halves in that, make sure they are coated all around. Keep the leftover coating. Place the peach halves on the grill and let them heat for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on how much heat and coals were left from the main grillin'. While heating brush the peach halves with any remaining coating. They should be softened and show traces of browning when done.
Two grilled peach halves topped with a gob of whipped cream makes a nice ending to a good grilled meal. An' just in case you were thinkin' of drinkin', Bud or Mich is good most of the time but not with peaches, honey and whipped cream. How about a couple of shooters of peach schnapps, triple sec, and tequila, mingled together over some ice cubes? Make YOUR day!
Ya'll enjoy your dessert now, Ya'heah!
