This is a three-peat of sorts. Coloradans, wishing to serve delegates of the Democratic National Convention, the best of the best that Colorado has to offer, keep returning to Palisade Peaches. This is our third post mentioning this peachy suggestion. It simply makes sense. The peaches are at the height of their season at the same time as the DNC. And Democrat or Republican, Independent or Libertarian, we Coloradans want to show off the best of our state while the world has us in the spotlight.
So it's no great surprise when we unearthed this story in the National Food Examiner, "Celebrate the DNC with Grilled Colorado Peaches." Denver Food Examiner Andrea Spikes gets the credit for starting this trend all the way back on July 30. Here is her peach recipe:
"Once you have these succulent stone fruits on hand, here's an easy way to grill them. They will pair nicely with some vanilla ice cream and maybe even a drizzle of orange liqueur.
Grilled Colorado Peach
1 small peach (ripe but still fairly firm)
1. Preheat grill to medium-hot.
2. Cut peach in half, remove pit and brush lightly with vegetable oil.
3. Grill skin-side up for 4 minutes. Turn over and grill skin-side down for 3-4 minutes. Fruit is done when it is marked on the exterior, just barely softened and heated through in the center."
