Maple-Orange Peaches

If peaches aren't available, substitute nectarines; even canned peach halves will work.

Maple-Orange Peaches
Pin it


4 peaches
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur


  1. Prepare a medium fire in the grill.

  2. Dip peaches into boiling water for about 30 seconds to loosen their skins. With a sharp paring knife, pull away skin and discard. Halve and pit each peach, and place them in a large bowl.

  3. Pour butter, maple syrup, and Cointreau over peaches, and use a rubber spatula to gently and evenly coat them.

  4. Lift peaches out of the mixture and place on the grill. Reserve the juices remaining in the bowl. Grill lightly until heated through, about 5 minutes per side.

  5. Place peaches on serving plates and drizzle remaining juices over each serving. Garnish with cherries or berries, if desired. Serve at once.
