Frecon’s Cinnamon-Grilled PeachesMakes 4 servings
4 large ripe freestone peaches8 3-inch cinnamon sticks8 fresh mint leaves4 tablespoons unsalted butter¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar¼ cup dark rum½ teaspoon ground cinnamonPinch of saltPeach or vanilla ice cream for serving
Rinse the peaches and blot dry with paper towels. Cut each peach in half and discard the pit. Cut each peach into quarters. Using a pointed chopstick or skewer, make a starter hole in the center of each peach quarter, working from the pit side to the skin side. Skewer 2 peach quarters on each cinnamon stick, placing a mint leaf between the 2 peach quarters. Combine the butter, brown sugar, rum, cinnamon and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat to make the glaze. Let the mixture boil until it is thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.
Preheat the grill to high and oil the grate. Place the skewered peaches on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. As they are cooking, baste with the glaze. Spoon any remaining glaze over the grilled peaches and serve at once, along with peach or vanilla ice cream.
