What a lovely summer recipe, Kadesma! Wouldn't have thought of peach soup. Great twist on one of my favorites. Bet it would be great with a dollop of cold sour cream. Thank you for posting the recipe. Lucky you, to have all those peach trees. If you have any extra peaches, here's one I came across I'd like to try. (Wondering if I can make this indoors?)

Georgia Cinnamon Grilled Peaches

"When peaches are in season, I use whole cinnamon sticks as skewers to grill the peaches and nectarines. Ripe peaches, fresh mint, and cinnamon-grilling doesn't get more fragrant than this." A RECIPE FROM STEVEN RAICHLEN'S BBQ USA

4 large ripe freestone peaches
8 cinnamon sticks (each 3 inches long)
8 fresh mint leaves
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt

Peach or vanilla ice cream (optional), for serving

Rinse the peaches and blot them dry with paper towels. Cut each peach in half along the crease, running your knife in a circular motion around the peach and cutting to the pit. Twist the halves in opposite directions to separate them. Using a spoon, pry out and discard the pit. Cut each peach half in half.

Using a pointed chopstick or metal skewer, make a starter hole in the center of each peach quarter, working from the pit side to the skin side. Skewer 2 peach quarters on each cinnamon stick, placing a mint leaf between the 2 quarters.

Combine the butter, brown sugar, rum, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Let the glaze boil until thick and syrupy, about 5 minutes.

Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high. When ready to cook, brush and oil the grill grate. Place the skewered peaches on the hot grate and grill until nicely browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side, basting with the rum and butter glaze. Spoon any remaining glaze over the grilled peaches and serve at once.

Peach or vanilla ice cream makes a great accompaniment.

Yield:Serves 4

Do you have a Foreman grill mish? I would try it on there. Failing that...well, you could get creative with your frying pans, but that might be messy. I think this one sounds like a complete "must do" though.

Hi Alix. Thank you. Have an indoor grill I'm fond of...not a Foreman. It's shaped like a big pizza with a glass tempered lid & non-stick surface. Would hate to have a cinnamin stick meltdown . Made some good-sized meals on it, like brats, hashbrowns, onions & peppers. Didn't want to get off topic. Some peaches to ponder. Kadesma, saved your recipe to my files.

Hi Mish,

boy do we think alike I didn't have any sour cream, but did have creme fraiche, so used that on the soup..It was so good, I just plopped it along side the orange slice. We do have so many peaches coming, the grilled one you posted looks great and I know my family will love it. I'm going back to copy and save it..Thanks, you know me, I love recipes from a good source

Thank you again for the recipe, kadesma. Why don't I have creme fraiche always hanging around. Wanted to mention, bet this would be good topped with some diced peaches as well. Thinking out loud, wondering if I could try the recipe with Mangos? Big Mango fan here. Soup for thought.

Mish, I like mangos and I'd give it a try..To me expiermenting with recipes is fun and sometimes you get on heck of a good recipe..If you do try it, let me know and I'll have a go at it too...And I think sour cream is great and it's always on hand here.
