Grilled fruit is delicious whether you serve it as part of a delicious dessert or just plain as a side dish. Even if you only have small red berries, you will want to put the stem on top of the berries to prevent burning the delicate fruit. Be careful when grilling fruit. Small pieces can easily scorch the outside of your grill.
Different Options Available
You can make a fruit salad, grilled fruit cake, or even grilled pineapple cakes for grilled fruit desserts. All you need are fresh fruit, a cooking pot, and some sugar, butter, and vanilla extract. This dessert will surely be a hit at your next party.
Start By Adding Water And Honey
Start off by putting together two bowls of water and putting in three-quarters of a cup of honey. Stir this honey mixture into a bowl of water. You can then add in three-quarters of a cup of sugar. Mix these two ingredients thoroughly. Once you have done all of this, you can then pour in a fourth of a cup of water. Stir this mixture until the water bubbles and dissolves completely.
Use A Mixing Stick
The next step is to take a mixing stick and mix in your prepared syrup, ice cream, and your berries. After this, you can then spoon in your chopped peaches and/or prunes. If you would like your dessert to be sweeter, you can add in more of the honey or even more ice cream, but I suggest keeping the sweetness in check by using ice cream to give the dessert a more smooth and creamy texture.
After this, you will want to spoon in about one to one and a half tablespoons of yogurt. Mix this yogurt in well with the rest of your ingredients. It is important to remember that yogurt is not a dairy product so if you are going to make grilled fruit desserts, you will want to either use skim milk or skip it altogether. Using yogurt will help to keep the dessert from melting too much as it can cause the cooled yogurt to curdle, which will ruin your grilled fruit desserts.
Start Cooking Your Fruits
Now you will want to start cooking your fruits. Since you want everything to steam, you will want to cook your fruits and vegetables at approximately half the temperature that they are in when they are fresh. For example, if you have a bunch of bananas that are just being used for making a popsicle, you will not want to cook them too quickly because they may end up mushy. Instead, you will want to steam them until their temperature reaches approximately forty-five degrees Fahrenheit. If you do not know how to properly cook bananas, simply substitute with a frozen banana instead.
Grill Your Pineapple
Once your bananas are done as well as your other fruits, it is time to move on to the next ingredient. You will want to start grilling your pineapple. Start by taking your pineapple and placing it directly on a hot grill. You will need to add oil to the grill so that the pineapple does not stick to the grill. The oil will also help to keep the pineapple crisp while it is grilling.
Once your pineapple is cooked, remove it from the grill and allow it to cool down for about ten minutes before serving. When you serve it, you will want to add simple syrup to give it a nice flavor. The sweetness of the honey will be greatly enjoyed by guests. These are three easy step by step ways to making a grilled fruit cake that will impress those that see it and those that taste it.
