Barbecued peaches with rosemary and maple butter

Barbecued peaches with rosemary and maple butter

The first time I had these was at a wedding in Tuscany, under a line of olive trees. They were sensational! I add a crumble of amaretti biscuits on top as a finishing touch.

Slice the peaches in half through the middle and remove the stones. Thread the peach halves on to the rosemary stalks or wooden skewers

SERVES 6

6 ripe peaches

woody rosemary stalks, for skewers (or use wooden skewers)

240g butter

2 tbsp chopped rosemary leaves

2 tbsp maple syrup

150g mascarpone

6 amaretti biscuits, crumbled

  • Slice the peaches in half through the middle and remove the stones. Thread the peach halves on to the rosemary stalks or wooden skewers.
  • Prepare a charcoal barbecue or turn up a gas barbecue to a high heat, or place a griddle pan over high heat. Grill the peaches, turning frequently, for about 10 minutes until they are soft.
  • While the peaches are grilling, pace a saucepan over low heat and add the butter, rosemary and maple syrup. Stir until the butter has melted, then leave to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Transfer the grilled peaches to dessert plates and drizzle the hot rosemary and maple butter over the peaches, followed by a dollop of mascarpone and a sprinkling of crumbled amaretti biscuits to serve.
