Balsamic-Glazed Peaches with Prosciutto

  • Yield: 12 servings


1/4cup balsamic vinegar
1/4cup honey
6 peaches, peeled and each cut into 8 wedges
1ounce proscuitto, sliced paper-thin and cut into strips
1tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Combine the vinegar and honey in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.  Simmer until syrupy and reduced by one-half; the glaze will continue to thicken slightly as it cools.
  2. Wrap each peach wedge with one strip of prosciutto.  Sear the wedges in the oil in a skillet until the prosciutto is light brown.  Drizzle with just enough balsamic glaze to coat the peaches.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
