I think I’ve really been feeling fall coming and now it’s finally here. I’ve been making a lot of pork with fruit and I think maybe it was due to anticipation of warm, cozy, cool weather meals and that feeling of harvest time in the air. There are still peaches in the stores for sale at the same time that the leaves are beginning to change and our annual apple picking trip is upon us so I’ve still been buying them while the price is on the low side.
I’ve seen grilled peaches mentioned a lot since I started the blog but had yet to try this culinary marvel. Of course, now that I have finally tried them, I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner. I don’t know how, I grilled them dry, but the finished peaches were almost buttery and I’m completely sold on the whole idea. I’m thinking bbq sauce, preserves, chutney…
Boston Butt pork roast
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Season the roast with salt, pepper, coriander, and rosemary.

Grill the peaches, cut side down.
Turn and grill on the opposite side, cooking twice on each side until softened and caramelized. Serve with sliced pork and pan juices.
