It’s the height of peach season, and every time I walk past this aromatic fruit in the grocery store, my mouth starts watering and I begin racking my brain for the next peach recipe I can make.
My mom made a similar dish last summer, but I have simplified it quite a bit. The flavors in this recipe are the perfect blend of sweet and tangy, and it is absolutely DELICIOUS! It’s so easy to whip up for a fresh dessert or appetizer that is sure to impress anyone.
Side Note: I used South Carolina peaches for this recipe… did you know ONE peach grower in South Carolina grows more peaches than the entire state of Georgia? #NowYouKnow 🙂
- Balsamic Vinegar for Reduction (I used half a cup)
- Goat Cheese, Crumbled
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Slice peaches into wedges, and lay slices on a cookie sheet or baking dish.
- Bake peaches for 5-8 minutes, until warm. You want to bake just long enough for the peaches to warm, but not completely bake through so you still have the fresh peach flavor.
- While the peaches are baking, reduce the balsamic vinegar. Heat vinegar in a saucepan on medium heat. Bring to a boil. Once the vinegar reaches boiling, reduce heat to a simmer. Allow vinegar to simmer until it reaches a thicker, syrup consistency.
- Remove peaches from oven, and drizzle with balsamic reduction.
- Add crumbles of goat cheese.
- This recipe is super easy to adjust proportions whether you're cooking for 1 or for 10.
