About this recipe:These are so easy to make and really remind me of summer. So often we only barbeque meats and fish, forgetting that fruit cooks on a bbq so nicely too. It works just as well with coconut if you've a nut allergy sufferer and nectarines and apricots also switch into the recipie easily. This is for those with a sweet tooth. The creme fraiche is good if you like something not quite so sweet, but the kids love it with ice cream.
squares of silver foil, cut large enough to wrap peach halves in a "soft" parcel.

First make the sauce. Mix the sugar, honey, butter and salt in a saucepan. Heat until boiling and sugar dissolved, mixture should thicken in about 3 minutes. Stir in the cream and bring back to the boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and leave to cool slightly.
Set the peach halves (hollow side down) onto individual squares of silver foil. Curl the edges of the foil up around the fruit and place on the barbecue. Cook for 5 minutes.
After five minutes, turn the peaches over and spoon the almonds (or coconut) into the hollows. Pour 1 heaped tbsp of honey sauce over each half. Wrap the peach completely in silver foil. I find little parcels with the top wrapped over works nicely. Place these packages back onto the barbie for about 10 minutes or until soft.
Serve hot with the remaining sauce and a little vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche.
I was looking for something that the kids would eat on the BBQ and this caught my eye as I had everything in the cupboard. I love recipies where I don't need to go to the shops!
Anyway, really easy to make and tasty, my only complaint was it didn't serve 8 as the kids (two of them) ate the lot and I had to make more. - 07 Jul 2009
