Harry & David Oregold Peaches are a summer favorite, and there’s a million ways to serve them up this season. One way to add peaches to your summer meal plan is by grilling them up to perfection. Often overlooked, grilled peaches can be a fresh addition to a meal as an appetizer, salad, or dessert. So, go grab your peaches, fire up the grill, and prepare yourself for some perfectly peachy recipes!
How to grill peaches
Grilling peaches couldn’t be any easier! Just take a barely-ripe peach and slice in half to remove the pit. Place each half cut-side down on a grill and let cook for 4 to 5 minutes until the peaches start to soften and juices begin to caramelize. Remove them from the grill and tuck in!
