August’s ripe peaches are great grilled, both as a light dessert and as a sweet-savory side.

For dessert, pilotgirl210 halves peaches or nectarines, brushes the cut sides lightly with canola oil, and grills them over medium heat, cut side down, until lightly browned. Turn the fruit over, spoon a teaspoon of blueberry preserves into the cavity of each half, and grill until they’re tender; serve hot.

ChefBoyAreMe grills peaches as a side dish: Halve peaches, brush with extra-virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grill until lightly charred, turning once. Finish with a squeeze of lime.
