A few moments on a hot grill can transform ripe fresh fruit into a delectable treat. Brushing the kabobs with a light honey syrup tinged with cinnamon adds a layer of flavor that helps bring out the fruit’s natural sweetness. Any combination of fruit will work, but the strawberries, pineapple, banana and apple here are a particularly festive combination.
|1 banana||1/4 cup honey, for the syrup|
|12 strawberries||3 tablespoons water, for the syrup|
|1 apple||1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, for the syrup|
|12 chunks fresh pineapple|
Soak 6 bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes and prepare a medium-hot fire in the grill.
Cut the fruit into chunks (halve the strawberries) and thread onto the skewers, leaving a little room at either end so you can pick them up.
In a microwavable cup, heat the honey on high for 30 seconds (this makes the honey thinner). Stir in the water and cinnamon; brush the fruit liberally with this mixture.
Grill the skewers 2 to 3 minutes over indirect heat; flip the skewers and grill an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the fruit is lightly browned but not charred. The fruit should start to soften but not get mushy.
