Introduction

Peach Cobbler, without all the cobble! This week's recipe was shared by our featured artist, Jim Weber of Clayshapers Pottery in Milner, Georgia. Smoky Sweet Grilled Peaches! Jim and Sally Weber, a husband and wife team, live in an old 1825 Dog-trot house with two children, Phillip and Kit, along with Jim's mother, Dr. Alice Weber. They work together in their studio and create gorgeous art which is as different as cats and dogs. http://clayshapers.org/

Ingredients

  1. 6 Georgia peaches
  2. 3 Tbsp. butter
  3. ½ tsp. cinnamon
  4. ½ tsp. nutmeg
  5. ⅓ cup brown sugar

Steps

  1. Rub the fuzz off, wash them, or peel them (if you must, they are one of the more heavily sprayed fruits, although the skins DO act as a bit of containment. You can always avoid eating the skin).
  2. Get rid of the pit (freestones, or semi-free stones)
  3. Brush with butter.
  4. Grill on a med hot area of your grill, flat side down until you get the dark grill marks, turn them over, moving them to a cooler spot of the grill.
  5. Fill the pit cavity with brown (or cane) sugar, cinnamon and/or some fresh grated nutmeg,( maybe some MORE butter).
  6. They will not need much more heat-work and can actually remove to as cool a spot as you have available, if you want to slow them until the main meal is eaten. I have managed the timing such that they are the last thing to be cooked, dropped the grill cover to stifle the coals, or turned off the gas.
