Peaches are just about the perfect summer fruit. Grilled and accompanied by a smooth dollop of something simple like crème fraîche, they make the perfect finale to any barbecue, and they’re so easy to prepare. Leave the peaches to rest for a little after they’ve been grilled, so their juices slowly ooze to make a wonderful syrup. Other summer fruit work equally well — try apricots, nectarines or even mangoes. The natural sugars will caramelise and you’ll get a great sweet, smoky flavour coming through.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
6 ripe peaches, halved and stoned, (they must be ripe)
6 teaspoon brandy
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar
250ml crème fraîche
1 tablespoon chopped mint

Method

  1. Prepare your barbecue for cooking on a medium–high heat.
  2. Place the peaches on the grill, flesh side down. Cook for 5 minutes, then turn the peaches 90 degrees so you get a crisscross pattern from the grill.
  3. Turn the peaches over gently, sprinkle with brandy and a little vanilla sugar, and cook for a further 2–3 minutes.
  4. Serve each with a good dollop of crème fraîche, garnished with mint.
