Grilled Stone Fruit




It feels like fall and you won’t hear one word of complaint from me about it – well… except for that whole football season part.  (Famously also known as “widow season” in my house.) Because I might as well be one.

But, aside from that, fall is what’s what.  And so instead of mourning summer, I am sending her off with a bang.  Goodbye, sweaty face!  Goodbye, sticky thighs.  Goodbye, weather induced near nakedness.  Goodbye humidity.  Goodbye, you hussy of a season.  I will not miss you until February.


As part of my “Get the heck out of dodge, Summer!” party, I made one of my favorite summer desserts.  Grilled Stone fruit.  This is so easy, a toddler could do it, although I wouldn’t recommend that, sense toddlers and fire seem to be a bad combination.

IMG_4477Here’s what happens.  You cut up stone fruit ( you know, apricots, plums, peaches, nectarines) and you grill them for ohhhhh 10 minutes or so.  Then you drizzle them with local honey, a spattering of fresh granola and heaping tablespoons of greek yogurt.  Yep.  Toss in some fresh basil and it transforms from dessert to salad.

I know, magician.

Grilled Stone Fruit



Spray your grill grate with pam to make sure the fruit doesn't stick.  Heat the grill over medium heat and place the fruit flesh side down on the grill.  Cook for 5-7 minutes, depending upon how hot the grill is and how ripe the fruit is.  You don't want it falling apart, but you also don't want your peaches/nectarines to be too firm.  Rotate clockwise halfway through to give your fruit those great grill marks.  Turn over after 7 minutes and cook for 3-5 more minutes on the other side.  Serve on a platter with fresh torn basil leaves, a drizzle of honey, fresh granola and greek yogurt.
