(WSVN) - Peaches are in season and that means one thing — fresh and delicious dessert. A spiked delight is on the menu as we grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Chef: Belkys Nerey
The Dish: Grilled Peaches with Bourbon Brown Butter Sauce
1 half stick (1/4 cup) salted butter
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 ripe peaches
1/4 cup chopped, toasted pecans
Ice cream or whipped cream, for serving
Method of Preparation:
– In a saucepan set over medium heat, add the half stick of butter. Over the course of approximately five minutes, we are going to make brown butter. First it will melt, then it will foam up and turn a blond color, then the milk solids will turn brown. Once the butter is browned, remove the pan from the heat and carefully add the bourbon from a distance, as it will make the brown butter sputter and foam up. Add the brown sugar and return the pan to the heat. Give it a stir and bump the heat up to medium high. Let the brown sugar dissolve and the sauce boil for five minutes. In the meantime, begin to heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.
– Slice all the peaches in half and remove the pits. Place all of the peaches, cut side down, into the sauce for 30 to 60 seconds just to coat the surfaces in sauce. Move the peaches to the grill, and grill them for two to three minutes on each side, until the outside begins to caramelize and the peaches soften.
– Serve the peaches with whipped cream on the side, drizzle with the Bourbon Brown Butter Sauce and sprinkle with the pecans. Keep in mind, the sauce will harden up as it cools, but you can simply bring it to a boil again to liquify and drizzle, as needed. Enjoy!
