Grilling peaches

How to pit a peach

  1. Using a paring knife, start at the stem end of the fruit and cut through to the pit. Run the knife all the way around the fruit, keeping the blade up against the pit, finishing where you started.
  2. Hold the fruit in your hands and gently twist each half in opposite directions until one half comes free from the pit. Set that half aside.
  3. Remove the pit from the remaining half by loosening one end with your finger or the tip of a knife.
