You can’t beat this time of year with so many delicious things showing up at the farmer’s market. One of my very favorite things of all are the stone fruits. Cherries, plums, apricots, peaches… mmmmm… I just can’t resist them! I’ve been picking up a lot of fresh fruit this summer and peaches are currently at the top of my list.
While I love eating a sweet and juicy peach all on it’s own, I add them to our meals in other ways as well. I’ll toss them in salad, use an all-fruit peach jam to glaze chicken, whip them into smoothies, or add them to a curry instead of mangos. For a simple sweet and savory summer appetizer that is light and easy to eat on the back porch, try gluten free Crostini with Prosciutto and Grilled Peaches.
Grilling peaches intensifies their natural sweetness and adds a bit of smoky flavor. Give it a try! You can grill the peaches right on the grill outside, or alternatively, a cast iron skillet with grill groves on the stove top.
Gluten Free Crostini with Prosciutto and Grilled Peaches are perfect for barbecues and summer parties. Or nibble on them while hanging out with you family in the back yard for a fun snack. Enjoy!
