Grilled Peaches with Buttery Amaretto Baste
From 300 Big & Bold Barbecue & Grilling Recipes, by Karen Adler and Judith Fertig

Fresh, juicy peaches are one of summer’s true pleasures. We take them a step further by placing them on the grill for warmth and caramelization. The almond-flavored butter baste is simply divine.


For the Buttery Amaretto Baste:

1/4 cup unsalted butter (50 mL)
1/4 cup amaretto (50 mL)
Pinch sea salt

4 large firm peaches or nectarines (unpeeled), halved
Crème fraîche or whipped cream
Blackberries, raspberries or blueberries


1. Prepare the baste: In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in amaretto and salt. Keep warm.

2. Prepare a medium-hot fire in your grill.

3. Brush peaches all over with baste. Place cut side down on the grill. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes, turning and basting once, until peaches are tender and blistered.

4. Arrange peaches on a platter or portion onto plates. Dollop with crème fraîche and scatter with berries.

Yield: Serves 4 to 8
