Fresh Grilled Peaches

This is a simple dessert. Our friend Sara brought these sweet peaches back from the east side of Washington – Naches, outside Yakima. Fresh grilled peaches taste like the smoky essence of a late summer evening barbecue. They’re simplicity to make, and the perfect topping on a bowl of frozen yogurt. They taste lovely eaten indoors too, but are most special eaten beside the embers of a campfire.
