Why are grilled peaches so good?

People often ask, why grilled peaches are so tasty. The grilling brings out the natural sugars in the fruit and intensifies the sweet, sugary flavor. The caramelization that happens from the grilling really improves the flavor.

Can you grill jarred peaches?

Yes, you can grill canned peaches. Just make sure to pat them dry with paper towels or kitchen towels before grilling them. That is key is helping them get those caramelized grill marks.

Pro Tip. Since the jarred peaches are normally sliced, they will have a tendency to fall through the grill grates. Therefore, place them on two skewers. This will allow them to cook, not slide off the sewer and not fall through the grill grate.

How to Make Easy Grilled Peaches?

With just two ingredients, you can make this sugary and juicy peaches dish.  

Use fresh peaches. With a paring knife, slice the peaches in half. Remove the pit.

Use a brush or drizzle with a light coating of olive oil on the cut sides of the peaches.  Pro Tip. Use peach halves rather than peach slices. It will prevent them from falling through the grill grates. Additionally, it will help reduce the chance of overcooking the fruit. And it is just so pretty with the caramelized grill grate marks.

Use a gas grill or charcoal grill. Preheat to medium heat. Make sure to clean and oil the grill grates before placing the peach halves on.

Grill for 4 to 5 minutes.
