Honey Grilled Peaches

GrilledPeaches

You might be wondering why the addition of honey is necessary in this recipe and depending on how ripe your peaches you are you might decide to omit. Many of us in the Paleo sphere are very cautious about recommending sugar intake whether it is from a natural source or the processed white sugar that we know may play a role in chronic disease. One interesting study on PubMed looks at natural honey as having a positive effect on Type 2 Diabetes through different mechanisms. Honey has also been shown to have antibacterial properties and may be good for your gut and digestion. This Labor Day weekend during a relaxing trip to Equinox Resort in Manchester, Vermont, we picked up some raw honey at the Dorset Farmer’s Market from Pitchfork Preserves. After arriving home, we decided to put it to work with our Stony Hill Farm’s CSA Share’s Peaches. The sugars on the peach allow it to get a nice grill mark and the heat further reduces and softens the peach. You can make this as a stand alone dessert or combine with whipped coconut cream or coconut milk vanilla ice cream!
