Pancetta-Wrapped Peaches with Basil and Aged Balsamic
16 thin slices of pancetta
2 freestone peaches-halved, pitted and cut into 8 wedges each
Freshly ground pepper
16 basil leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil
Aged balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
Lay the pancetta slices out on a work surface. Set a peach wedge at the edge of each slice, season with salt and top with a basil leaf. Roll up the pancetta to enclose the peaches.
In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil. Add half of the wrapped peaches and cook over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until the pancetta is browned and crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a platter and repeat with the remaining peaches.
Lightly drizzle the peaches with aged balsamic vinegar and serve.
