Last year I bought a half dozen peaches, got out some brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, syrup, molasses, honey, and who knows what else, to try to come up with a good grilled peaches recipe.  Took all the pictures, had my inlaws and wife doing the taste testing.  In the end had a clear winner on some combination, except I forgot what that combination was. 

So, I was all set to run through that again, when my buddy Arthur told me about his recipe and I had to try it.  Rather than re-invent the wheel again, I had to try the recipe with the rum in it. 

The full write up, with pictures of every step is right here, and the salivating inducing pictures are below:







And here is the full write up, sans pictures if you want to skip the link:

I have to warn you that I am a peach fanatic.  I love peaches, peach pie, peach blend fruit drinks, peach wood, peach, peach, peach.  I love all things peach.  I grilled peaches for the site last year, and ran through about 8 different combinations of recipes and took all the pictures, but then forgot which one was the best.  So when I decided to do them again, my good buddy and guest contributor here, Arthur Aguirre, suggested this recipe.  So instead of trying to reinvent the wheel of all the combinations I did before, I thought I would go with his first.  Ill revisit mine at a later date.  I couldnt resist going with this one first when he told me it had rum in it.

Ingredients:

Ripe peaches
4 tbsp Butter (Smart Balance Butter can be used as a substitute for a healthier option)
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Rum
1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
Vanilla ice cream

First make up the sauce:

Put the butter and brown sugar in the pot:

Add the rum and I actually grated cinnamon from a stick.  You can use pregrated if you like:

Now over to the peaches.

How many peaches you need depends on how many youre serving.  I wound up only using two of these as they were quite large:

Slice into quarters or eighths and discard the pit.  A lot of people cut them in half and grill, which is fine.  But if you cut them in quarters or eighths then you get a higher grilled surface area to peach flesh ratio:

Now on to the grill.  I had a blazing hot fire here and put the pot with the sauce on it to melt the butter and get everything blended together:

The picture above didnt do the fire justice.  The flash washed out the flames and redness of the coals.  Heres a shot without a flash to give you an idea of how hot it was:

Wait for the butter to melt and all the goodness to blend together:

Now, dunk the peaches in the sauce and put them directly over the fire:

Dont go anywhere at this point.  This part happens pretty quickly.  Keep checking the peaches to make sure they dont burn.  When they got some nice grill marks I flipped them:

See that one on the bottom in the above picture? The one with the most char?  After I took the rest of the pictures I put the camera away and made up some more.  The ones that had more char on them were the best.  These couldve used a little more time on the grill.

Once theyre charred on each side, place around a scoop of ice cream and be sure to spoon some of the butter rum sauce over the ice cream and peaches:

For the sake of full disclosure, the peaches were tart and it really took away from the dessert.  The sauce was heavenly and couldve been spooned over the ice cream without the peaches.  So make sure the peaches are ripe and sweet before trying.  If you start with bad peaches you will finish with bad peaches.  Otherwise this is an awesome dessert.

You know what's funny?  Not a single one of my neighbors, except the guy across the street, knows that I have a grilling website.  They just think I'm the crazy dude who grills any time there is any appreciable snowfall. 

We served the neighborhood pig candy last year on Halloween, and plan do do so again this year, but none of my immediate neighbors were in attendance. 

You never know.  You may be my neighbor and not even know it?!?!

I'm telling you, none of my neighbors notice a thing.  None have ever asked what I'm grilling, they just notice that I'm always grilling. Or at least I used to be.  A 2 year old and a 3 month old limits my grilling quite a bit...

As for pig candy, all I can say is bacon, brown sugar, and a grill.  It will blow your mind.  My grandfather is the Godliest man I have ever met and was almost angry at one point when I came back in the house without a tray of the pig candy. 

Here's a link to the pig candy.  Also, you don't have to do it on the grill.  I heard about it from people doing it in the oven but then it seemed to click between us being the Grillin Fools, it was Halloween and it would be the perfect hand out for the adults...
