Grilled Stone Fruit

We’ve discussed grilling lamb chops, shrimp, and we’re a little tired of the standard BBQ style hamburgers and hot dogs — let’s talk grilling stone fruit!

Grilling fruit is a lovely addition to a simple Summer meal. It adds color, and a particular sweetness to a savory meal. Stone Fruit can be used in a multitude of ways. It adds an elegant touch to a Summer or Fall meal, while being extremely easy. The smokey, charred flavor of the fruit is a game changer. The secret to the taste is simply all in the fruit itself! As the fruit grills, some of the water inside begins to evaporate. This allows the sugars within the fruit to concentrate and become caramelized! This leaves sweet, brittle grill marks on the fruit. The caramelized flavor is distinct and can be perfectly complimented by adding balsamic vinegar and butter.

I love using grilled fruit on salads or as a side dish, or a garnish, but most of all as a dessert.  Today I grilled plums, nectarines, Michigan cherries, and peaches, I was lucky to find beautiful Yellow King Midas plums that added a beautiful color. The beauty of this dish is that you can eat the stone fruit plain or pair them with a piece of cheese. However, you’re best pairing them with your favorite ice cream!
