In my humble opinion, grilling and Father’s Day go hand in hand. Earlier this week Aviva posted a wonderful article about her father and a fantastic recipe for Grilled Baby Back Ribs with Pineapple Glaze. I thought it would be fun to also post a recipe for grilled peaches with ricotta and a balsamic vinegar reduction.
Grilling fruit is a great outdoor dessert option during the summer because of the slight caramelization which occurs in the fruit’s own natural sugars. Fruit such as pineapple, apples, and pears work great because of its firm texture while other fruits such as plums, nectarines, and peaches much be watched more closely so they aren’t overcooked.
Personally I love grilled pineapple skewers drizzled in a bit of honey. But my go-to recipe for grilled fruit is peaches. Sometimes I serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream. But today we are going a little bit more fancy in honor of Father’s Day.
Happy Father’s Day to all the incredible fathers out there making a difference in the lives of our children each and every day.
