My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Grilled Peaches in Rum

Our peach season is all but over. I really don't care I have tons in my freezer and my freezer is full of everything. My friend Pat, who is the wife of my boyfriend, David, who has the produce stand, gave me peaches yesterday and I decided to make these for Bible Study.

Grilled Peaches in Rum
Serves 6 or 12 old people
print recipe

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 cup rum
6 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
1 pint or more caramel ice cream

Heat grill to medium heat. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Take off heat and add the brown sugar and rum. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Place the peach halves in a large bowl. With a rubber spatula, gently stir in the rum mixture and continue stirring until the peaches are well coated. Grill the peaches, cut side up, about 5 minutes. Turn over and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, brushing the peaches with the rum mixture. Serve with the ice cream.
