Fab Frugal Friday: Grilled Fruit

Peaches on the Grill

Peaches on the Grill

One of my greatest discoveries this summer is grilled fruit. This is soooooo easy you can even send one of your older kids out to the grill with a bowl full of fruit lightly sprayed with oil and some tongs and let then throw them on the grill!

So many fruits turn out great when grilled – I think peach halves are my very favorite. They taste fab and make a delicious frugal topping for ice cream. I also like eating them the same way my grandma ate plain peaches – sliced into a bowl with a little milk and a sprinkle with sugar. Yum!

For extra flavor, I use a balsamic reduction glaze: 1 cup of balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup brown sugar simmered until reduced slightly. Brush on the fruit and then use the extra glaze as a drizzle later.

    Definitely try these – they are great on ice cream.

    I crank up the heat to the the highest “Screaming Hot” setting and then spray the peach halves with a little oil. I put them cut side down and just let them sit for a minute or two – they cook really quickly. Then turn them over for just another minute.

    Peaches need to be ripe but firm, not mushy or they will fall apart on the grill.
