These delicious marinated grilled peaches with ricotta cheese are both hot and cold, savory and sweet.

Marinated Grilled Peaches


  • 3 peaches

  • 3 oranges

  • 1 grapefruit

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (or 1 stick)

  • 2 shots rum

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 cup ricotta

  • 10 mint leaves

  • Splash of cream or olive oil


  1. Cut peaches in half and remove pits; place in a large bowl.

  2. Cut the grapefruit and oranges in half and squeeze juices into the bowl with the peaches. Add the honey, cinnamon, rum and a pinch of salt. Stir to combine. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or up to 4. Reserve marinade liquid.

  3. Coarsely chop mint leaves and combine with ricotta in a small bowl. Add salt and olive oil or cream to taste.

  4. Heat a grill pan. Remove the peaches from the marinade and grill them cut-side down until grill marks form. Do not flip.

  5. Place peaches on a plate skin-side down. Dollop the ricotta mixture into the hole where the pit was; serve.

  6. Optional: Serve the leftover marinade liquid over ice for a refreshing adult beverage!
