This is a game changer. Grilled peaches are absolutely amazing. This is arguably the best way to eat a peach. Make a cut along the seam of the peach and twist it open. Remove the pit. Spread canola or vegetable oil on the peach and put them on a hot grill. Grill the halves for 3 to 4 minutes face down. When the peach is soft and cooked through, and has grill marks remove them from the heat. While they are still hot, put a pad of butter and cinnamon and sugar on them. The butter, cinnamon, and sugar should melt inside the peach. Put a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. My mouth is watering already. Super easy, super delicious, and super unexpected.
A lot of Brazilian restaurants have grilled pineapple. It is such a delicious treat. Use a cup of brown sugar and mix it with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Core the pineapple and cut it into wedges. Put the wedges into a plastic bag with the brown sugar and cinnamon and shake the bag until the pineapple is evenly coated. Grill the pineapple on a hot grill until each side has grill marks. The brown sugar makes a caramel coating on the pineapple. Everyone will love it!

I know. Why haven’t you thought of this before? Cut the banana in half lengthwise and put them on the grill face down. The banana gets super sweet and a little crispy around the edges. Yum. You won’t believe how delicious this makes the banana taste. Pour melted chocolate on top of the banana or make a full on banana split. The works! Ice cream, cherries, whipped cream, almonds, chocolate fudge, and grilled bananas.
No, I’m not crazy. Watermelon on the grill makes a delicious summer treat. When you grill something it brings out the natural flavors of whatever you’re grilling.

You just might love it.
