Maple Glazed Grilled Fruit Skewers
We don’t usually associate dessert with the grill–but why not? Serve this recipe over a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dairy-free substitute.
½ cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
2 firm ripe peaches, halved and pitted
2 firm ripe plums, halved and pitted
2 firm ripe nectarines, halved and pitted
1 cup pineapple chunks
4 wooden skewers, soaked in water 20 minutes
1 pint vanilla ice cream or dairy-free substitute
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add fruit and toss gently to coat with glaze. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
2. Preheat grill to medium-high and generously brush grates with olive oil. Thread the fruit onto skewers, alternating variety. Place skewered fruit on the grill, cut side down, and cook, turning occasionally, until heated through and syrup caramelizes, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve fruit warm over ice cream.
