Typically, the thought of grilling conjures images of hotdogs and hamburgers. However, the grill is capable of delivering some delicious options for dessert, as well. Fruit on the barbecue is a natural choice, as its sugar caramelizes from the heat.
Almost any stone fruit will cook up beautifully on the grill, but peaches, plums, and nectarines are particularly suitable. The following directions are for simple grilled fruit, which can be adorned with vanilla ice cream, crème fraîche, or a dollop of whipped cream for a delightful ending to any meal.
1. Heat grill to high heat.
2. Cut fruit in half and remove pit.
3. Brush a thin layer of oil on the cut side of the fruit
4. Place cut side down and grill until evenly charred and warmed through, approximately three to four minutes.
