Grilling season has recently started and not only do I love grilled meats - I love grilled fruit! Grilling fruits bring out it's natural sweetness and there is nothing like eating a piece that is dripping with juices hot off the grill. Two fruits that I love to grill are peaches and pineapples.
Grilled Pineapple [03.06.2010]
To grill fruit, I like to brush it with olive oil beforehand. I cook it until it's tender, but I still want it to have some bite - no mushy fruit here! I also aim for grill marks, so make sure it's hot. On the stove top, I made a reduction of spiced rum, brown sugar and dried cherries. I kept it warm and brushed it onto the pineapple after it came off the grill. It not only gave it another layer of flavor, but a beautiful shine.
I don't have a picture of grilled peaches, but I love them seasoned with salt & pepper. Try it for yourself - it's amazing!
