Grilled Fruit Kebabs

Grilled Fruit Kebabs

Grilling is one of my favorite ways to cook. If I can throw something on the grill to make a meal, no matter how odd it might be, you can bet I’m going to do it.

All my grilling enthusiasm has been made a whole lot easier and more accessible with my Aroma Super Pot. No need to worry about fuel or coals, waiting forever to preheat, guessing the temperature or waiting extended periods of time for my perfectly grilled meals. The Super Pot is ready to tackle any grilling job in about 30 seconds. I can control the heat with the turn of a knob and its non-stick surface makes grilling and cleaning up things like fruit so easy.

Wait… did I just say “grilling fruit”? I sure did. My newest frontier is dessert on the grill. Ripe fruit grilled slightly to bring out its sweetness then brushed with honey—perfect on its own or with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can pretty much grill any fruit you like and I know we’re all planning to fire up the grill this weekend during our Memorial Day celebrations, so why not add a little grilled dessert to your menu?

Ingredients

3 pears
1 pineapple
2 oranges
2 mangoes
1 dozen strawberries
5 (6″) wood skewers
honey, for drizzling

Directions

Peel the pears, pineapple, oranges, and mangoes and cut into bite-sized chunks.

Skewer fruit, alternating as you choose, and set your Super Pot to 300º F.

Place skewers on the hot grill and cook about 1 minute per side or until grill marks appear.

Brush the top of the kebabs with honey before each turn to caramelize the fruit.

Serve hot, chilled or at room temperature, with or without ice cream… although we all know my suggestion on that part 🙂
