Heat grill or switch on electric griddle to high setting.

  1. Mix all ingredients (except pork chops) in small bowl until well incorporated.
  2. Remove a quarter of the mix and set aside and put the remaining marinade in a storage bag with pork chops and marinate for 4 hours (overnight is even better).
  3. Grill pork chops for 6–8 minutes each side.
  4. Glaze one last time before removing from grill and let rest on plates or platter for 7–10 minutes before serving.

TIP: Save the extra peach glaze and use it to spice up other grilled meats and poultry.
