Grilled Peaches in a Dark Rum Bath
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1/4 cup dark rum
6 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
1 pint caramel ice cream
Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas or electric grill on medium.
In a small saucepan set over low heat, melt the butter. Remove from the heat and add the brown sugar and rum. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
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 directly over the medium fire; cut-side up, until grill marks are visible, about 5 minutes. Turn the peaches over. Cook until grill marks show and the peaches are tender, about 4 or 5 minutes more. Brush any left over rum mixture on the peaches as they grill.
Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream.
