The kids are back in school, vacation time is behind us, and while it’s getting dark earlier, we still want to hang on to a piece of summer. We can’t think of a better way to do it than to grill the last of the summer fruit before it’s gone.
Before you get started, you’ll want to put a little bit of olive oil on the fruit. It will help it from sticking to the grill and adds another layer of flavor to it. Once you’ve got it on the grill, don’t forget about it! It won’t take it long to cook, and if you wander off you won’t be happy when you get back to it and see it ruined. Keep an eye on it. Or assign someone else to. (Have you ever noticed that people usually like to help?)
Nectarines, peaches, apricots and plums are more than delicious when grilled. You can leave the skin on once they’re finished grilling, or peel it off. Your choice. And while they’re so good on ice cream for dessert, how about serving them either on, or as a side with grilled pork, steak or chicken? (If you have any left over, then you can use them for dessert. Or just pop them in your mouth and save some calories!)
A grilled apple will probably be even better than you could imagine. Baked apples have been around forever, but grilled? The same way that the flavor is enhanced in something like an apple tart, they’re just as good without the crust. And nothing is stopping you from adding it to your protein, or topping it with whipped cream or ice cream for dessert.
What about grilling a banana and adding a s’more to it for a different kind of banana split. Note: leave the bananas in the peel and slit them lengthwise while grilling. If you don’t have any young sprouts running around making s’mores, just add some hot fudge. Or go back to your youth and make those s’mores yourself. You can skip your Boy Scout or Girl Scout uniform. It probably won’t fit anymore, anyway.
For a riot of flavor, put different kinds of fruit on skewers and let ‘em rip. You can include cantaloupe, cut into chunks, and even figs. But make sure the figs are a little bit firm so that they don’t fall apart. And don’t forget the strawberries! As good as they are raw, grilling adds something wonderful to them.
Now make that run on your local market or street fair or even your own backyard and gather up that fruit. Then get busy! And when the grilling is over and it’s time to clean up, please remember that we make the best grill scraper available. Our scrapers keep your grill clean and well-maintained. You can get a mini one, or a heavy duty one, or a heavy duty one with a squeegee. Any of them will get the job done right, save you time and money, and take some pressure off your back, legs and feet.
If this is your first time visiting us, we’d like to point out that our scrapers are made right here in the USA. This is something we’re extremely proud of. We help keep Americans working, and there’s no question that we help them keep on grilling.
