You’re always grilling meat and vegetables, but have you ever thought about grilling your fruit?
Fruit isn’t typically the first thing that comes to mind when firing up the grill. But it’s super easy and will enhance the taste. Fruit consists of water and sugar. When grilled, the water is reduced and the sugar caramelizes, making the flavor more concentrated. Grilled fruit is a perfect appetizer, side dish, snack, or even dessert. All you need is your fruit of choice, water, and cooking oil to make a tasty addition.
What better way to prepare an easy-to-follow recipe for you and your family?
Fruit can be a healthy alternative to other grill-friendly foods. It can also entice your kids to eat their fruit. Children are more likely to give it a chance and enjoy the flavor explosion. Since there’s more concentration after being grilled, this is a great way to satisfy your child’s sweet tooth without consuming more sugar.
Now that your mind has been opened up to the idea of grilling fruit, what now?
If you’re looking for a creative way to spark your taste buds, click on the recipes below:
The fruits that make preparation easier are hard fruits, like apples, pears, and pineapple. Softer fruits like mango tend to be delicate on the grill, and run the risk of overcooking. Either way, any type of fruit can be grilled with the proper attentiveness and technique. When slicing, keep the peel on, so the texture will hold, making it more suitable for grilling.
