How To Grill Peaches: The Easiest, Simplest Method — Peachy Keen

The grill has the ability to elevate sweet, juicy peaches from over-the-sink snack to dessert or a side dish with nothing more than heat.

The truth is that grilled peaches are stunningly simple. They only require fresh peaches and olive oil, make the most of residual heat from a cooling grill, and can play side dish to grilled meats or become a knock-out summer dessert. Here's how to make the best peaches on the grill in just four steps.

Having a freezer full of crisp or crumble topping is like a dessert secret weapon. It allows you turn any fresh fruit (or hey, even thawed frozen fruit) into an after-dinner treat without dirtying more than one bowl.

Once you understand the basics of making a crisp topping, you can use literally any fruit to make a sweet and juicy filling. Here's how to make a fruit crisp in four easy steps.
