Dessert Time! Grilled Peaches with Pomegranate Balsamic Syrup

Can you believe I’ve never grilled peaches?

When Bobby Flay grills fruit I’m so impressed, yet I’ve never tried it myself. The simplicity of grilling a peach to make a yummy dessert, seemed too good to be true.

Boy was I wrong! Nothing could have been easier than pitting my peaches and throwing them on the grill until they gave off a lovely aroma and had colorful grill marks.

I decided to come up with my own sweet concoction to top my juicy dessert. This recipe for grilled peaches with sweet balsamic syrup was even better with a dollop of sour cream and fresh mint from the garden.

Thanks Bobby! As usual the King of the Grill is right on the money.

Healthy cooking tip . . .

Be sure your grill is squeaky clean. You don’t want bits of charred food from past grilling events on your peaches – yuck!

Happy cooking!

Dessert Time! Grilled Peaches with Pomegranate Balsamic Syrup
  • 1 ½ cups Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 large peaches, halved with pit removed
  • 4 teaspoons light sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons mint, chopped
  1. 1. In a small saucepan, add vinegar and sugar. Heat over medium low heat and bring to a low simmer for 20 - 30 minutes until vinegar is reduced to a syrup consistency. Remove from heat.
  2. 2. Oil very clean grill with canola oil and heat to medium.
  3. 3. Spray cut side of peaches with cooking spray and place cut side down on the grill. Grill for 2 - 3 minutes per side until there are nice grill marks on the peaches. You just want to heat them through and get those grill marks. You don't want to cook them to mush.
  4. 4. Remove to dessert plates and top with syrup, a dollop of sour cream, and mint.

      I often forget how simple to make and good a balsamic syrup is added to almost anything. I’m going to start making some with the flavored balsamics like this one.

    I grilled peaches last summer, but they weren’t quite ripe enough. I’ll have to give it a shot again with your recipe…it sounds fabulous!

      My peaches were very firm, but ripe enough. You probably wouldn’t want them to be too ripe either, or they would turn to mush before they caramelized on the outside.

    Grilled fruits are fabulous! I have yet to try peaches. The pomegranate vinegar makes this one extra special too! Happy Independence Day!!

    Looks delicious! I have it on my summer list to grill fruits -brilliant minds thinking alike! I look forward to your next grilled fruit post!

    I’ll bet them smelled wonderful on the grill! I’ve got to give this a try, although mine will be on my indoor grill pan. Some day I’ll have outdoor space!

    We are just back from Bobby’s Vegas Mesa Grill and I’m with you on the grilling!! I have seen him do peaches too, but like you I’ve not actually done it on the grill. With my dad’s peach tree nearly ready, I’m inspired!!

    I accidentally bought a bottle of somewhat pricy raspberry balsamic vinegar a few weeks ago. This looks like an excellent use for it!

    I can-not believe you’ve never grilled peaches! :-) Actually I had never grilled peaches until a couple years ago. I’ve got a good recipe that includes vanilla. As soon as we get Colorado peaches, I’ll have to blog that one.
