Grilled Golden Peaches: The Autumnal Delight

Grilled Golden Peaches: The Autumnal Delight

As the air grows crisp, autumn brings a season of warmth and comfort. And what could be more comforting than the sweet, charred flavours of grilled fruit? This autumn, we’re putting the spotlight on a seasonal favorite: BioGro certified organic golden peaches from Central Otago. Here’s why they’re perfect for your grill and your palate during this cosy season.

Why Golden Peaches are Autumn’s Best Kept Secret

Golden peaches are not just summer’s farewell gift; they’re autumn’s welcoming embrace. Their firm flesh withstands the heat of the grill, caramelising into a warm, sugary delight that complements the cool evenings. Rich in vitamins and antioxidants, these peaches are a healthy treat that aligns with the season’s harvest theme.

How to Grill Golden Peaches to Perfection

Grilling peaches is simple, but the results are anything but ordinary. Here’s how to do it:

Select the Right Peaches: Look for peaches that are ripe yet firm, as they’ll hold up better on the grill.

Prepare Your Peaches: Wash the peaches, cut them in half, and remove the pits. A little lemon juice can prevent browning and add a zesty flavour.

Season Simply: Brush the peaches with a mix of honey and cinnamon or a sprinkle of brown sugar to enhance their natural sweetness.

Grill to Golden Glory: Place the peaches cut-side down on a preheated grill over medium heat. Grill for about 4-5 minutes until you see those beautiful grill marks, then flip and cook for another few minutes until soft.

Serve with Style: Pair your grilled peaches with a dollop of whipped cream, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or even a slice of blue cheese.

    The Benefits of Grilling Peaches

    Grilling peaches not only intensifies their flavor but also retains more nutrients compared to other cooking methods. The heat brings out their natural sugars, making them a healthier alternative to processed desserts. Plus, the warm, smoky essence of grilled peaches is the perfect match for autumn’s ambiance.

    So, as you embrace the sweater weather, don’t forget to add some grilled golden peaches to your menu. They’re not just delicious; they’re a celebration of the season’s bounty and beauty.
