Yesterday, I found a few peaches in the fridge (somehow or another I’d forgotten about these babies!) that were just the right stage of ripeness and decided to make a little something for dessert.  With cake cooling on the counter, Peach Sauce was the perfect choice.

I decided to grill the peaches first, which gave them a great depth of flavor.  Warm, sweet peaches, cool, vanilla ice cream along with fluffy, Angle Food cake, yep, it’s gonna be a great evening.
