Marinated Grilled Peaches with Cloves

Grilling juicy peaches with aromatic cloves and chopped mint lends the fruit savory, spiced flavor to balance the peak-summer sweetness




6 peaches

12 cloves

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 tablespoon chopped mint

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon brown sugar

8 ounces heavy cream

4 ounces powdered sugar, plus 4 ounces, for dusting




Cut peaches in half and remove seed. Place clove in the center of each peach and sprinkle with mint and cinnamon. Melt butter and mix with honey, cinnamon and brown sugar. Brush each peach with butter mixture. Place peaches skin side down on grill and grill to heat through about 4 minutes. Whip cream and 4 ounces powdered sugar together until stiff peaks form. Place 2 halves of peach on plate and garnish with 1 tablespoon of whipped cream. Garnish plates with remaining 4 ounces of powder.
