  • Step 1

    Preheat the grill for medium direct heat, about 350 degrees F. Place a clean grill rack or basket on the grill and let it get hot for about 3 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Bring a small pot of water to a simmer over high heat. Place the open jar of honey in the hot water and warm it until the honey becomes thin and pourable. Using a pastry brush or a grill brush, brush the skin side of the peaches with some of the honey. Place them on the hot grill, flesh-side down, cover, and cook for 2 minutes. Gently flip the peaches over so the skin side is down, and spoon a generous amount of honey into the peach cavities. Cover the grill and cook for another 3 minutes. The honey should caramelize on the peaches and the peach flesh should begin to turn a golden brown. The peaches should be slightly soft but not “cooked.”

  • Step 3

    Place the peaches on a platter. Spoon a generous dollop of the crème fraîche into the cavity of each peach and drizzle the remaining honey on top.

  • Step 4

    Variations
    Sprinkle with chopped toasted pistachios, pine nuts, or your favorite nut.
    Decorate the plate with edible flower blossoms.
    Substitute ripe summer nectarines, plums, or apricots for the peaches.
