Grilled Summer Peaches

Share

I can't imagine a yummier way to get my daily fruit servings than these sweet peaches. If the peaches are really ripe, consider going without the sugar and simply mix a little ginger with the lime juice before dipping.

I can't imagine a yummier way to get my daily fruit servings than these sweet peaches. If the peaches are really ripe, consider going without the sugar and simply mix a little ginger with the lime juice before dipping. The ginger helps prevent cancer and the peaches are high in antioxidants that help protect from heart disease, cancer and other degenerative conditions.

6-8 fresh peaches or canned peaches without syrup
1/4 cup (60 ml) lime juice
1/4 cup (60 ml) natural sugar such as Sucanat (optional)
1 tsp (5 ml) powdered ginger

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Place the lime juice in a shallow bowl and in another shallow dish mix together the sugar and ginger. Dip the flat part of the peach half in the lime juice and then press into the sugar mixture. Repeat until all peach halves have been dipped and sugared. Place peaches flat side down on a medium to hot grill and cook for 5 minutes or so, until they get light grill marks. Serve warm with natural yogurt or ice cream. Garnish with fresh flowers or mint.
