peachy keen

The carnivore claims he isn't a big fan of peaches. However, when I made a peach pie recently he ate it up. So I thought I would test my luck with another peach dessert. After all, this fruit is such a good source of lycopene and lutein, which are known to prevent hear disease and cancer. Who doesn't what a dessert with those kind of health benefits?

This dessert however, had something else going for it - you make it on the grill. See, in the carnivore's book almost anything is better over an open fire. It must be the primordial man in him that loves to cook stuff over flames.

But, I didn't stop there. To make sure the carnivore would devour it, I added ice cream. There is nothing that man won't eat if there is ice cream along side it. So, here it is - grilled peaches a la mode.

To make this dreamy dish, simply melt two tablespoons of butter. Then add two table spoons of brown sugar to the butter and mix well. Then slice your peaches in half and pit them. (You can also remove the skins if you wish). Toss the peaches in the sugar mixture. Then grill them over low heat for about 3-5 minutes - till soft but not mushy - look for the nice char marks. Serve them will still warm with vanilla ice cream (we like Breyers). Sprinkle the whole dish with a bit of cinnamon and enjoy! I know we did.
