Grilled Peaches and Summer Strawberries
vanilla ice cream
toasted almonds or crushed amaretti cookies (optional)
Pre-heat your grill to medium. Quarter your peaches and dress with a little olive oil and salt. If your grill has larger slats, simply make a bed of tin foil to hold up your peachy goodness. Once the fruit is on the grill, let it get some color and soften up. Remove when soft and lay over vanilla ice cream. Top with your choice of toasted almonds or crushed amaretti - or just enjoy the simplicity of warm peaches and cream.
1 Qt. strawberries
1/4 cup sugar
1-2 Tbsp. aged balsamic vinegar, to taste
a handful of fresh basil leaves
Clean and quarter your strawberries. Dust with a little sugar to get the juices flowing. Drizzle on a little of your favorite aged balsamic vinegar. Rip up the basil leaves and toss with the fruit. This topping is amazing on vanilla ice cream or brownies.
