Grilled Peaches with Butter Rum Sauce
About This Recipe
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
Ice cream to complete dessert
Melt butter in saucepan. Add salt and brown sugar. Cook this mixture until brown sugar is melted, about 3 minutes. Add rum—the mixture will bubble up. Boil mixture another 5 minutes. Set sauce aside and prepare peaches.
Halve or quarter peaches. Oil the grill grates with canola or other neutral oil. Grill peaches a few minutes without sauce. Brush par-cooked peaches with sauce and at this point they must be watched closely due to the sugar content of the sauce. As peaches develop grill marks, they can be removed to a platter. Do not overcook or peaches will not hold their shape.
Gently reheat sauce. Place ice cream in a stemmed glass. Add 2 to 3 peach quarters. Drizzle sauce over top.
