Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream and Fresh Strawberry Sauce
2 cups fresh strawberries, washed, hulled, and quartered
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
2 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 quart really good vanilla ice cream, or other flavor of your choice
Build a multi-level fire in your grill: Leaving one-quarter of the bottom free of coals, bank the coals in the remaining three-quarters of the grill so that there are about three times as many on one side as on the other. When the coals are all ignited and the temperature has died down to medium (you can hold your hand about 5 inches above the grill grid, over the area where the coals are deepest, for 4 to 5 seconds), you’re ready to cook.
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, and lime juice and mix well.
Put the peaches on the grill, cut side down, and cook just until lightly seared, about 6 to 8 minutes. Flip them over, brush the tops with the butter, and cook until the butter begins to caramelize, another 2 or 3 minutes.
