The peaches are sweet and juicy, the pancetta is crisp and salty, and the basil is fresh and fragrant. The vinegar adds a light tanginess that makes this appetizer superbly gourmet.

Pancetta-Wrapped Peaches

Ingredients

  2. 2 medium freestone peaches — halved, pitted and cut into 8 wedges each
  3. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  4. 16 basil leaves
  5. toothpicks
  6. Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling

Directions

  1. Lay the pancetta slices out on a work surface. Set a peach wedge at the edge of each slice, season with salt and pepper and top with a basil leaf. Roll up the pancetta to enclose the peaches and secure with a toothpick.
  2. Heat a grill to medium. Place the peaches on the grill and grill, turning so each side is cooked, until the pancetta is crisp and the peaches are soft, 20-25 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a platter and lightly drizzle the peaches with aged balsamic vinegar and serve.
