Grilled Fruit – Yum!

I want to share a very delicious dessert “we’ve” made the last 2 weekends. The love bunny and I enjoy cooking together and we found this recipe but he has taken over making it and its sooo yum.  There are only a few ingredients and the process is quite easy.  We served it last night to friends who were over for dinner and they loved it.

The first time we made it only with peaches.  Last night we used a peach, a plum and a pineapple.

Ingredients:

Your choice of one or mix of peaches, pineapples, plums

1 cup honey

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

(1/4 cup rum – optional) we added this last night and it added to the lovely taste but you didn’t taste the rum as rum.

Run your knife from the top all around the peach or plum to the beginning.  Holding the fruit in your hands, give a twist to free the fruit apart.  Take out the pit.  If using peaches you might choose to peel it but the plum skin doesn’t need to be removed.  If using pineapple take off the outer part of the pineapple.  Cut it in half lengthwise.  Then cut each half again lengthwhise.  Run your knife down the body of the pineapple to remove the core. 

  Take a gallon size zip lock bag and add the honey, cinnamon and vanilla.  Sort of massage them in there to mix them.  Add the peach and/or plum halves and the pineapple, whatever fruit you are using into the ziplock bag and seal.  Massage the fruit gently in the bag so they are covered with the marinade mixture.  Let it marinate for at least an hour, we would allow about 3 hours.

Heat the grill and turn up heat to high to burn off and clean the grids and use a heavy brush to clean the grids.  Place the fruit right on the grill.  Allow them to cook approximately 10 minutes per side, basting periodically with the marinade reserving some of the marinade.  When fruit is hot and has softened some and just looks like its done remove to a platter.

  Cut the fruit into bitesize pieces.  Place on individual plates with a dallop of ice-cream on top and pour on a little of the reserved marinade.  Voila!  Thats it.  Deeeelish!
