Grilled Peaches to Cap Off Summer

by Jacqueline May Conte


Life’s simple pleasures. I’m sure you have a few. One of mine is diving face first into a ripe peach in late summer.

Well, here we are. And peaches are still coming! So, why not dive in and try this recipe? It’s the most simple recipe with only two ingredients, but a whole lot of flavour! It’s also a great one to cap head into fall with, and I’ll tell you why.

Peaches contain pretty decent levels of vitamin C – an important nutrient that benefits your immune system. A healthy immune system can keep colds and flu’s at bay throughout the winter. Another one of life’s simple pleasures. It’s no wonder peaches grows when they do.

Enjoy this recipe, and the rest of your summer. Eat up!
