Grilling peaches enhances their flavor with the char and smoke of the grill — perfect for making a barbecue sauce. Just be sure to use fruit that’s ripe enough to enjoy, but not so ripe that it falls apart on the grill.

Test Kitchen Tip

Peach nectar contains about 50 percent fruit, giving it a thicker consistency than peach juice.


Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

Grill peaches and onion, cut sides down, until grill marks appear, 3 minutes for peaches, 5 minutes for onion; transfer to a cutting board and let cool. Peel and discard peach and onion skins, then dice.

Cook bacon in a saucepan until crisp; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and discard all but 1 Tbsp. drippings. Add peaches and onion to pan; cook over medium-high heat until softened, 45 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Deglaze pan with nectar, scraping up any brown bits. Cook until nectar is reduced by half, 12 minutes.

Stir in ketchup, preserves, brown sugar, vinegar, chipotle, mustard, and lime juice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer sauce 5 minutes.

Purée sauce with a handheld blender, then stir in bacon and season with salt. Serve sauce with grilled pork or chicken.
