If the grill is hot, why stop the cooking fun when the main dish is finished. Grill dessert too.
Why, you ask? Because you can, it’s fun AND it’s unexpected.
The perfect dessert recipe to start with is honey grilled peaches.
Grab a brown paper bag full of peaches at Market Street and let them ripen at home (if they’re not already ripe). Cut these golden beauties in half and then drizzle with local honey. Place face down onto the grill and warm them up for about six minutes.
What’s wonderful is that the steps to this summer-fresh dessert are few and the outcome is a sweet dessert that is healthy and appealing to many.
Looking for something a little more indulgent? Not a problem!
Take a jaunt down the freezer aisle at Market Street and pick up some Tillamook vanilla ice cream to pair with the grilled peaches. If you’re craving a little bit more goodness with your grilled peaches and vanilla ice cream snag a freshly baked pound cake from the Market Street Bakery.
Honey Grilled Peaches (with ice cream and pound cake) is a summer-fresh dessert that carries on the beauty of outdoor cooking— no mess inside and a sweet summer experience.
