How to Grill Fruit
I’m going to show you how to grill fruit. So let’s take this lovely pineapple, nice and ripe. What you want to do is check the pineapple. When you’re in a store pull out the top and if it pulls out nice and easily and if the pineapple is nice and fragrant then you know it’s nice and ripe. You can also feel that it’s softer as well.
So let’s cut the pineapple. I’ll cut it in quarters like so. This will allow me to quarter it or I’m sorry, to core it. So cut it in quarters first. Use your large chef’s knife and then just slice down the center and take the core right out of the pineapple.
Now, these quarters are actually rather large so I’m going to cut them again and then once I’ve done that I can zip the skin right off. Just take your knife and just slide it along the skin.
Now, I have my water soaked skewers right here. So, I’ll cut this into bite size pieces and then I’ll thread it on one of my skewers. Pineapple or most fruits because of their natural sugars don’t need any marinades and the natural sugars actually help them to brown very nicely.
Grilling fruit also adds a little bit of extra sweetness to it. So let’s place this on our grill and let me do just one more to show you that one more time. So again, slide your knife along the skin and just zip it right off. Cut this into bit size pieces, place it on a skewer.
And you will need to turn this a little bit so the even browning all over or you could just cook it on one side just long enough to warm the fruit. Simply warming the fruit will also enhance the sweetness.
Now, while our pineapple is cooking let’s talk about the other quick easy side dishes that we can make for our barbecue.
Let’s give our pineapple a check. Oh, it looks good. We have nice grill marks on our pineapple as you can see so grilling fruit without any additional marinades, just makes a nice sweet touch to any meal.
