Servings: 8 people
These Grilled Peaches & Rum Caramel Sauce are incredible. The caramel sauce takes special attention, and maybe even a little practice, but once you get it, these will be about the best dessert you'll ever serve. A little smokey, a little sweet, a little punch from the dark rum = pure delicious.
FOR THE RUM CARAMEL SAUCE
- 1 & 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tbsp dark rum
- 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
FOR THE GRILLED PEACHES
- 4 - 6 fresh peaches cut in half and pits removed
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Olive oil or grapeseed oil
MAKE THE RUM CARAMEL SAUCE
Mix the sugar and 1/3 cup cold water in a heavy-duty 3-quart saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Cook, covered, checking occasionally, until the mixture starts to darken slightly, about 5 - 7 minutes.
Immediately remove the lid and using your hands, swirl the pan frequently until it is a dark amber. Do not stir. This will happen quickly.
Reduce the heat to low and carefully whisk in the butter. It will bubble.
Keep whisking until the bubbles stop.
Add the cream, whisking until the caramel is smooth, about 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the rum, salt, and vanilla.
MAKE THE GRILLED PEACHES
Heat your grill to medium-high heat.
In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar.
Brush the cut-side of the peaches with the oil.
Place (over direct heat) on the grill, cut side down, for about 3 minutes. Rotate 90 degrees, and cook for 3 more minutes.
Meanwhile, brush the tops with the oil.
Turn the peaches over and move to in-direct heat.
Sprinkle cut sides with cinnamon sugar.
Cover grill and cook until sugar is melted and fruit is tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove and place on platter. Pour Caramel Sauce over the top.
