Grilling peaches is an easy way to save peaches for freezing when you’ve bought too many in the summer months. You’ll have them available to enjoy later in the season, if they last that long.
Grilling concentrates the sugars in the peach, enhancing the unique peach flavor without being cloyingly sweet.
1. Preheat grill on low.
2. Cut peaches in half and remove pit.
3. Brush on a light coat of oil to the cut side of the peach. Use a light, tasteless oil such as canola, grape seed, or avocado.
4. Place the oiled side down on the grill and cook for 5 minute, until you see grill lines on the inside flesh of the peach.
5. After cooling, slice and freeze in portions for easy use.
Peaches and nectarines provide potassium, carotenes (vitamin A), flavonoids (vitamin C), and natural sugars (fructose, glucose, and sucrose).
One medium peach or nectarine (3.5 ounces) is 49 calories, has 0.3 gram of fat, 0.9 gram of protein, 9.5 grams of carbohydrate, 1.5 grams of fiber, and 8.4 grams of natural sugars
Grilled peaches are a great topping for oatmeal, yogurt, or just by themselves.
If you want to hold on to summer just a little longer, grill and freeze fresh peaches to enjoy in the off-season.
