  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) 10% half-and-half Ontario Cream

  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) butter

  • 1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) vanilla

  • Pinch sea salt

  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) Ontario Mascarpone Cheese, at room temperature

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) 10% half-and-half Ontario Cream

  • 3 firm ripe Ontario Peaches

  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Ontario Honey

  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped toasted hazelnuts or walnuts


In small saucepan, combine sugar, 1/2 cup (125 mL) of cream and butter; bring to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring for 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, stir in 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla and salt. Cool slightly (sauce will thicken).

In medium bowl, with wooden spoon, beat mascarpone cheese until smooth; stir in 1 tbsp (15 mL) of cream and remaining vanilla until blended. Set aside.

Slice peaches in half and discard pits; brush cut side with honey. Place cut side down on greased grill over medium heat. Grill covered for 4 to 6 minutes or until warm, softened slightly and grill marks appear. Place peach halves in small dessert bowls, spoon mascarpone in centre, dividing equally. Drizzle each serving with about 2 tbsp (25 mL) of sauce and sprinkle with nuts.
