Of all the parties we throw throughout the year, summer parties are my favorite.

The casual attitude of a backyard gathering, the use of fresh summer produce, the fruity beverages… What’s not to love?

Plus, you can do your cooking outdoors!

Making the most of the grill is a great way to keep your party low-maintenance.

When grilling for a party remember to:

  • Stock up on the charcoal or propane.
  • Prepare all your grill items and place them on a big tray before the guests arrive. That way, you can stand at the grill and chat, and won’t have to run in and out of the house all evening.
  • Make sure to set up the bar and any children’s activities far away from the grill.
  • Have a fire extinguisher on hand, just in case.
  • If you are not grilling yourself, assign your most attentive friend to the grill.
  • GRILL EVERYTHING! The grill is not just for meat anymore. Your green veggies, corn on the cob, bread, pizza, and potatoes taste great with a little smoky char… And don’t forget to GRILL YOUR DESSERT!

Perfect Grilled Peaches and Ginger Ice Cream Recipe #summer #peach

I love throwing sweets on the grill. Fresh cut fruit, pound cake, and hand pies are all grill-friendly treats that make an impact at a party.

This easy and elegant dessert of Grilled Peaches and Ginger Ice Cream is the perfect way to end a summer soiree.

As if fresh summer peaches weren’t a treat on their own, grilled peaches have an intense peachy flavor and caramelized face that makes them irresistible.

The best part about including grilled peaches in a dessert is that they take no time to prepare. Simply cut them in half, remove the pits, and place them on a hot grill, face-down. Grill 2-3 minutes per side and you’re done.

Homemade candied ginger ice cream is a brilliant pairing with sweet grilled peaches. It offers a rich creamy texture and a hint of spice. The little bits of crystallized ginger bring an unexpected pop to the classic peaches and cream.

I think Grilled Peaches and Ginger Ice Cream might just be my new favorite thing.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Sweet warm grilled peaches with creamy homemade candied ginger ice cream.
Servings: 12


For the Ginger Ice Cream:

For the Grilled Peaches:

  • 6 firm, ripe peaches


For the Ginger Ice Cream:

  • Place the half and half, cream, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and salt in a medium sauce pot. Place over medium heat and whisk well. Slice the piece for fresh ginger into several slices and toss into the pot.
  • Bring the mixture to a low boil, whisk well and remove from heat as soon as it thickens a little. (Watch that it doesn't boil over.) Place a lid on the pot and allow the mixture the steep for 20+ minutes.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or over night. If in a hurry, place in the freezer for 1 hour, until cold but not frozen. Once chilled, pour through a sieve into the bowl of an electric ice cream maker. Turn the ice cream maker on and churn until thick, 20-30 minutes. Once the ice cream in "soft-serve" consistency, pour the chopped crystallized ginger in. Add 1/2 cup if you like ginger. Add 1 cup if you LOVE ginger!
  • Allow the ginger to mix through, then turn off the machine and spoon into an airtight container. Freeze until ready to serve.

For the Grilled Peaches:

  • Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Place on a hot grill, face-down. Grill 2-3 minutes per side. Serve the warm grilled peaches with a scoop of candied ginger ice cream!
