What could be better than a fresh peach in the summertime…not many things!! I tried something new with peaches and decided to throw them on the grill. They turned out delicious!!! They have such a naturally sweet taste that they make a perfect summer dessert. They are also in season right now, so you could possibly pick them up at your local farmer’s market!

2.  Grill peach halves face down for about 3-5 minutes.
3.  Flip peaches over and grill skin side down for about a minute. (Be careful on this step the skin burns very easily!)

A yummy way to add some Potassium to your diet!  Potassium helps you maintain a healthy blood pressure.  This recipe is a bit high in sugar so if you are watching your sugar intake you should add less honey.  (The peaches do contain some natural sugars.)
