When you say that you're cooking on the grill, things like burgers and steaks immediately come to mind. What we don't often consider when we think about grilling is grilling fruits. If this is something that you have never heard of and you're interested in trying, here are a couple of good recipes for grilled fruit that everyone should try out.
The first recipe is for grilled pears. This recipe will take you twenty minutes to finish, ten minutes each for preparation time and cooking time so, it's actually a really quick dish to prepare.
Here are the things that you're going to need.
- Two Ripe Pears
- ½ cup White Wine
- 1 tbsp Sugar
- 1 Cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon)
- ½ tsp Nutmeg
What you're going to do it spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Make sure that this baking dish is safe to use on a grill. Then, what you're going to do is to cut the pear in half, vertically, and remove the seeds. Place the pear halves face down on the baking dish and cover it with the white wine, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Preheat the grill and place these on there for about fifteen minutes. When most of the liquids are gone, that's the time to take it off and there you have it!
The second recipe also takes the same preparation and cooking time as the first one so, it is also quite easy to accomplish.
Here are the ingredients needed.
- 1 Whole Pineapple Sliced
- ¾ cup Tequilla
- ¾ cup Brown Sugar
- 1½ tsp Vanilla Extract
- ½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
- Vanilla Ice Cream
The first thing you're going to need to do is to mix the tequila, brown sugar, vanilla extract and cinnamon together once everything is mixed together and the sugar has dissolved. The next thing that you're going to do is to preheat the grill. Place the pineapple slices on skewers and place these onto the grill. Use the tequila mixture as baste while grilling and remember to occasionally flip the pineapple skewers. Leave this on the grill for about ten minutes and take it off and then top with ice cream while it's still hot.
The last recipe is for grilled cinnamon apples. The preparation time for this is five minutes but the cooking time takes fifteen minutes to cook. Overall, it takes the same time as the others to accomplish.
Here is the list of ingredients needed:
- 2 sliced Apples
- ½ cup Water
- ¼ cup Lemon Juice
- 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
The first that you're going to do is to actually preheat the grill. Then you have to put the lemon juice and the water into a bowl and add the apple slices into it. In a separate bowl, put in the cinnamon and the sugar. Place the apple slices on the grill and allow it to cook for six to eight minutes on each side. Once it's done, place the apples on a plate and sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over it.
So, there you go. This will add variety to your grilling recipes!
