Grilled Summer Fruit: How to Get Better Flavor and Color
Grilled fruits are one of our favorite summer treats, especially when served alongside a scoop of homemade ice cream. Bananas, peach halves, slices of pineapple – we’ll grill almost any fruit big enough not to fall through the grates! Here’s a tip for getting great caramelized flavor and an even golden crust on all of them.
Try sprinkling the cut surfaces of the fruit with a little sugar before putting it on the grill. The raw sugar coating will caramelize faster than the sugars already present in the fruit, ensuring a perfect golden color and deep caramelized flavor without overcooking the fruit.
