July and August are peach season in Colorado. Peaches from Palisade, a small growing area just East of Grand Junction, are the best in the world as far as I am concerned. I get a big box of fresh Palisade peaches each year and freeze most of them, but they were so pretty this year I wanted to do something special for dessert so I tried grilling them and they were wonderful.
One firm but ripe peach (freestone) for each serving
In a bowl mix brown sugar and cinnamon enough to have a spoon full for each peach half, set aside. Wash and cut peaches in half removing pit. You don't need to peel them. Brush each cut side with a small amount of vegetable oil and place cut side down on a medium hot grill. Cook until grill marks appear, turn over and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Cover grill if possible and cook until the sugar gets a little melted. Carefully remove peaches to bowls for serving. This is great topped with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
