Ingredients

4 ripe peaches, preferably freestone

1/4 cup sweet wine, such as Vin Santo, sweet sherry, or Beaumes de Venise

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup crème fraîche

1/2 lime

Directions

  1. Cut peaches in half and use a spoon to remove the pits. Rub the peach halves together to release their juices, then place cut side down over direct heat, 6 inches from the coals, or over medium-high heat on a gas grill or indoor grill pan. Grill until peaches are lightly charred, soft, and warmed all the way through, 3–4½ minutes.
  2. To serve, place the peaches on individual serving plates or one large platter. Drizzle with wine, then add freshly ground black pepper. Spoon dollops of crème fraîche over the peaches, then finish with freshly squeezed lime juice. Serve immediately.
