Juicy peaches drizzled with maple syrup, butter and as much cinnamon as you like – then grilled or roasted. Delicious! This is one of our favourite quick summer recipes to share, served with yoghurt, ice-cream or whipped cream and granola for some crunch. Enjoy!

Yield: 6-12 serves (depending on peach size)
Peaches, Fresh
Butter (or Olive Oil)
2-3 teaspoons
Maple Syrup
2-3 tablespoons
Cinnamon, Ground
1/2 teaspoon
1.  Pre-heat oven to 180°C (350°F). 
Or setup your outdoor grill/grilling pan.
2.  Wash peaches. Peel if you want (we leave skin on). Cut in half and remove stones. If you’re using the oven, arrange the peach halves in a single layer on a lined baking tray, cut side facing upwards.
3.  Melt butter then brush over the cut side of each peach half.
4.  Drizzle peaches with the maple syrup.
5.  Sprinkle ground cinnamon over the top – as little or as much as you like!
6.  Grill peaches until golden brown on the cut side and they are soft enough to cut with a spoon or fork – 25-30 minutes in the oven. For pan grilling/outdoor grilling on medium heat, flip your peaches once the cut side is coloured to your liking.
7.  Serve immediately or set aside to cool to room temperature, then pack into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 4-5 days. Grilled peaches can be served hot, warm or cold – however you like!
o  For quick prep, use freestone peaches. We use firm, fully ripe peaches for this recipe – if they are soft they can still be grilled/roasted, but will more than likely become yummy stewed fruit.
o  Replace cinnamon with pumpkin pie spice, ground ginger or even fresh herbs.
o  Replace maple syrup with honey, golden syrup, brown sugar - or other sweetener you like.
o  Try grilling/roasting other fruit – we love roasting pears, quince, plums and nectarines.
