Farmer’s Market Recipe: Pancetta Wrapped Peaches on the Grill

Inspired by fresh local ingredients in season at the Covington Farmer’s Market

You may want to double up on this mouth watering recipe – it will have you going back for seconds, and thirds! Be sure to grab fresh peaches, goat cheese, and jelly from your local farmer’s market!

5 – 6 slices of pancetta, cut into 2″ wide strips

peach2 medium peaches, pitted and cut into ¼ inch wedges

Sea salt & fresh ground black pepper

Local hot pepper jelly

Local goat cheese

12 – 15 large basil leaves

prepared wooden grilling skewers

Extra virgin olive oil

Heat your grill to medium heat.

Lay out the pancetta strips on a flat surface. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each peach wedge and place at the end of each strip of pancetta. Spread about a tablespoon of pepper jelly on each wedge, top with about a tablespoon of goat cheese. Cover with a basil leaf and press down lightly. Wrap gently with the pancetta, and secure on a skewer – you can fit a few on a skewer, but leave some space between them. Drizzle with olive oil and grill for 3 – 5 minutes on each side, until pancetta begin to brown. Remove from skewers and let cool a few minutes before serving. Alternatively, this recipe can be sauteed on a stove top. Enjoy!
