Grilled Fruit

Friday, July 16, 2010 @ 07:07 AM

Grilled fruit is an excellent side dish for the turkeys that we grilled or smoked yesterday, but grilled fruit goes great with lots of great barbeque.

We already discussed using apples for kabobs. You can also use pears, plums, even nectarines. You want them firm to the touch.

6- 8 small pears &\or apples

6-8 firm plums &\or nectarines

1 tbsp of walnut or sesame oil (you can just use regular vegetable oil too).

1 tsp honey

2 tbsp white wine or apple cider vinegar ( you can also use berry or fruit infused vinegar: see tomorrow)

If desired, 2 tbsp, fresh chopped mint

Wash & cut fruit in half. Remove pits, cores & stems.

Combine the oil, honey & vinegar in a glass dish. Dip the cut sides of the fruit in the marinade & let stand for about a half hour ( start about an hour before your turkey is done grilling).

Make sure your Brinkmann grill still has about medium hot charcoal.

Remove your fruit from the marinade and thread onto skewers. Grill over the medium hot coals, skin side down, for about 10 mins. Carefully turn your skewers and grill for 3-5 mins. longer. Remove from the skewers when done & sprinkle with the fresh chopped mint.
