I just made these grilled peaches for my friend Simon. They were terrific.

Let me talk you through it.

Esther’s grilled peaches

for 2

2 of the ripest peaches you can get hold of


double cream (optional)

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

some runny honey

some strawberries if you happen to have some but don’t bother if not

Set your grill to very hot

1 Halve or quarter your peaches (I had trouble halving mine round the stone so I quartered them. Fine.)

2 Put them under the grill for 3-5 mins either side. I left mine under there for a while until they had a bit of a char on, but do them as you like

3 Meanwhile combine about 4 heaped tbsp of plain or Greek yoghurt or creme fraiche or yoghurt mixed with some double cream or whatever, babes, with your ground cinnamon

4 When the peaches look ready, put them on a plate with the yoghurt on the side – cut strawberries as well, if you like
