Like all great fruits, peaches are in season in the summer months, from June to August. Which makes it the best fruit for grilling and a summer fruit staple.
If you’re wondering, “What does a peach taste like?”, the answer is that peaches are sweet and juicy. Considered a soft stone fruit, peaches have a soft and fuzzy like skin that is edible.
The center of a peach has a pit, just like plums do. Discard the pit, and the rest of the peach is completely edible.
To gauge the ripeness of a peach, you’re looking for a yellow bottom. Like watermelons that go from a green bottom to a yellow bottom when it’s time to eat, the same can be said for peaches. Remember to eat the peaches before they become too soft and develop brown spots all over.
For grilling peaches, you want a firm, but ripe peach.
Now, remember, fruit in general is a naturally sweet ingredient. Peaches are just like grapes, apples, watermelon, and plums. Juicy, tasty, and higher in carbs and sugars. But… they’re natural which makes peaches paleo and vegan friendly!
For grilled peaches, the sweetener used with it varies from recipe to recipe. Some people like to pair peaches with honey or peaches with brown sugar.
We’ve decided to make our grilled peaches with maple syrup. There’s just something about the light tasting sweetness that comes from maple syrup that pairs so well with the smokey fresh taste of grilled peaches.
Whichever you have on hand! In the past there were four grades of syrup. Now they’re all grade A, but separated by color/name. The lighter the color, the lighter the level of sweetness. The darker the color, the sweeter the maple syrup.
We recommend using 100% pure maple syrup for this recipe.
Maple syrup is a natural sweetener. It is a better choice over sugar, but like sugar, should be used in moderation.
Yes, maple syrup is a natural sweetener that has been used since early civilization. It is considered paleo and vegan, but is not keto friendly.
Like stated above, grilled peaches are amazing with just about any summer meal. Add it to your breakfast parfait or breakfast recipe, make a grilled peach salsa to top your fish tacos with, or slice your grilled peaches and lay grilled salmon over it for an amazing dinner!
Our favorite, is to add grilled peaches to desserts! Naturally, a side of vanilla bean ice cream or this healthy peach ice cream keeps this as a fuss-free quick and easy dessert idea.
