Honey-Grilled Peaches with Whipped Cream and Garden Herbs
Featured in Season 2, Episode 3
Cook time: Approximately 5 – 10 minutes
- 4 ripe peaches, sliced in half, pits removed
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp powdered sugar
- fresh mint leaves for garnish
Place cream in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Slowly increase the speed to medium-high and add the powdered sugar. Whisk until the cream develops stiff peaks. Taste and add additional powdered sugar if preferred. Set aside.
Preheat a grill to medium heat (alternatively, preheat the oven to 400°). Arrange peach halves, skin side up, on a baking sheet. Brush exposed peach skin with olive oil and drizzle honey overtop. Sprinkle with cinnamon and transfer peaches directly onto the grill, skin side down (or place baking sheet in the oven). Roast until the tops are bubbly and the honey is beginning to caramelize, 3-5 minutes on the grill (10+ minutes if using the oven).
Transfer warm peaches to serving dishes, top with whipped cream, garnish with fresh mint and enjoy immediately.
