Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Peaches with Ginger Coconut Caramel

1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated on a microplane
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 ripe peaches
1 lemon
1/2 tablespoon canola oil

Recipe Directions for Grilled Peaches with Ginger Coconut Caramel

  1. First make the caramel:

  2. In a 2-quart pot, mix together sugar, water and maple syrup. Place over medium heat, and stir with a wisk until the sugar has dissolved.

  3. Once dissolved, you don?t have to stir as much, but definitely keep a close eye so that it doesn?t burn, but do stir occasionally. It should be bubbly at the edges and start to turn a few shades darker. If it seems to be bubbling wildly, then lower the heat a bit.

  4. Let cook this way for 15 minutes or so. In the meantime, mix the cornstarch with the tablespoon of water and slowly add the coconut milk, mixing with a fork to thoroughly incorporate the cornstarch.

  5. Once the caramel turns a deep honey brown, slowly stream in the coconut milk, whisking constantly, then mix in the coconut oil, ginger and salt.

  6. Cook for another 7 minutes or so, so that the cornstarch thickens the caramel a bit. Let cool a bit, but serve warm.

  7. Prepare the Peaches:

  8. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Remember to lightly grease it first so that the peaches don?t stick.

  9. It?s easiest to slice the peaches width-wise (another way to think about it, is around the waist,) not stem to bottom. The pit will come out easier. Once sliced, hold each end of the peach and twist until it releases. Remove the pit, place peaches in a big bowl, and coat in oil and lemon juice. Use your hands to gently rub them and make sure they?re coated.

  10. Grill each peach face down for about 7 minutes. Use a thin metal spatula to lift them from the grill. They should be tender and have awesome grill marks. Flip and grill for another 2 minutes or so, just to soften a bit more.

  11. Serve immediately, with ice cream and drizzled with caramel.
