Peaches in honey and almond sauce

    5 min

    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.

    Serves: 8 

    • 4 peaches, cut in half with stone taken out
    • 75g ground almonds (or coconut if nut allergy)
    • 100g brown sugar
    • 150ml honey
    • 3 tbsp butter (or margarine)
    • Pinch of salt
    • 150ml single cream
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • vanilla icecream/creme fraiche.
    • squares of silver foil, cut large enough to wrap peach halves in a "soft" parcel.

    Prep:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Serve hot with the remaining sauce and a little vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche.

    The combination of honey and almond and the juiciness of the peaches was an absolute treat  -  07 Jul 2009


    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
