Nutritional Facts

Rarely does such little work produce a dish as rustic and refined as grilled peaches. A 5-minute glaze made from lime juice and fresh thyme provides the perfect balance to the smokiness from the grill. Use natural lump charcoal if you're using a barbecue grill. You can use either white or yellow peaches in this recipe. White peaches, which have pink skin, are a bit firmer and have more acidity than yellow peaches, while yellow peaches have more of the classic flavor associated with the fruit. You can grill other foods while you do the peaches; just place the peaches away from meat and direct flame.
