So the week is almost done and for the first time, I feel like this week has gone by as fast as the weekend. I’ve been so busy with work that I haven’t been able to get anything else done, namely prepare for the summer. I forgot/was too tired/it was too cold to go outside to cover up my grill this past winter, so now its just an ashen, spiderweb filled shell of what it used to be. I’m going to try to tackle resurrecting summer’s best friend some time this weekend so I can try out all of my favorite staple and new recipes. Somewhere on our site is a picture of some grilled fruit…it’s probably Lindsey’s but I think there’s a picture of mine too. Anyway, one of my all time favorite and super quick and easy grill recipes is grilled peaches. I found the recipe online a few years ago and as with everything, I tweak it to my liking, though I can hardly even write down a recipe…and my liking almost always includes adding alcohol.
- Get as many peaches as you like (half them and DON’T remove the skin)
- Enough liquor to cover the bottom of a pan (Bourbon or Whiskey works best, but you can take this out if you have kids…or not)
- Brown sugar to mix in with the alcohol (You can skip this if you’re not making them for dessert or keep it in if you’re leaving the liquor out)
- Butter or your choice of non-stick assistance (To prevent sticking)
- Mix the liquor and brown sugar together if you choose to use it and let the peach halves soak for at least 4 hours and no longer than 24hrs.
- Oil the grill grates well (If you don’t, most of the peach will stay on the grill!)
- Cook the peaches over a medium-high fire until grill marks show and the peaches are tender but still firm when you press them.
But onto the reason I actually wrote this post…I need to clean my grill! Outside of buying a new one, I’ve been researching ways to bring mine back to life. I found a decent article on The Kitchn for a quick grill refresh. Guess I’ll start with throwing all of my stuff in the dishwasher! Do you have any tips?
