Balsamic grilled peaches

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 large fresh peaches, halved and pitted

4 tablespoons blue cheese crumbles

Fresh cracked black pepper to taste

Combine vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan. Simmer on medium for approximately 10 minutes or until mixture has reduced by about half. Remove from heat, liquid will thicken as it cools. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high, spray with cooking spray, or lightly oil surface. Put peaches on grill, cut side down, and cook for about 5 minutes. Flip peaches with tongs, brush with glaze, and cook 2-3 minutes more. Place cooked peach halves in individual serving dishes. Drizzle with remaining glaze and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of blue cheese crumbles over each half. Top with cracked black pepper to taste. Serving size: 1/2 peach
