Bacon-Wrapped Peaches with Basil

I love this dish. It combines two of my favorite flavor profiles– salty and sweet. This appetizer is perfect for your late summer barbecue and its simple ingredients will go over big with your guests. Also, each of these ingredients can be found at the Fairfield Farmers market on the Sherman green. Little River Farm will have your peaches. Two Guys From Woodbridge carries the basil (their micro basil is a beautiful and tasty garnishes as well) and the bacon is available at Maple Breeze Farm stand.

Ingredients:

  1. 4 large peaches, quartered
  2. 12 pieces of bacon, cut in thirds
  3. 10-12 ripped basil leaves
  4. Olive oil
  5. Preheat the grill on low heat.
  6. Place some torn basil on cut side of peaches.
  7. Wrap peaches with bacon, pin the loose end of bacon with a toothpick to hold its place.
  8. Brush the peaches with olive oil so the bacon won’t stick.
  9. Cook, turning every 5 minutes or so for about 20 minutes until bacon is ready to eat.
  10. Serve hot or room temperature.
