Preheat grill to medium heat.
Wash and dry your peaches and then slice them in half and remove the pit (see Recipe Note).
Brush the cut side of each peach half with melted butter and sprinkle it with brown sugar.
Grill, cut side down, for approximately 5 - 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the feta, yogourt and honey in a small bowl and mix well until combined.
Your peaches are done when they are warmed through and they have been caramelized on the cut side, with grill marks.
Transfer your grilled peach halves to a serving platter, cut side up.
Fill the cavity of each peach half (where the pit used to be) with the feta mixture.
Garnish with the mint or basil if desired and drizzle with additional honey.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
How to pit a peach:The easiest way to remove the pit is to use a sharp pairing knife. Starting at the stem, slice all around the seam of the peach. You will be able to use the pit as your guide - make sure you are cutting deeply enough that you are feeling the pit with your knife. Once you have cut all around, remove your knife and twist the two halves apart with your hands. This can get tricky if your peaches are very soft and juicy; slightly firmer peaches make this job easier. Pull the halves apart and then use your fingers to pry out the pit.
