1amcooks-peach-glazed-pork-chopsSummer is peach season! Not only do peaches make for a great snack or dessert, their sweet flavors also pair well with other common ingredients to make this mouth-watering glaze for grilling meats. This recipe uses fresh peaches but you can also use frozen if you’re looking to save time with preparation (just make sure they’re thawed first!).


  • 1 cup peaches
  • 1/3 cup sugar (maple sugar may be substituted)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 pork chops
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Step 1: Puree the peaches with the water in a high-powered blender.

Step 2: Place the peaches, water and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat and allow the mixture to reduce, becoming thicker and stickier.

Step 3: Once the glaze reaches a consistency that you like, take it off the heat and mix in the balsamic vinegar.

Step 4: Brush the glaze over the pork chops and then season with salt and pepper.

Step 5: Grill or bake until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
