Stone fruit – peaches, nectarines, and plums – make for the perfect grilled end to your delicious summertime meal! Instead of the usual sliced watermelon and ice cream, you can enjoy the tastiness of the season and get a little more enjoyment from your grill with this incredibly easy, juicy and relatively healthy recipe!



Nonstick spray
3 firm but ripe nectarines, halved, pitted (peaches can be substituted)
3 firm but ripe purple/black plums, halved, pitted
3 firm but ripe red plums, halved, pitted
6 metal skewers or thick wooden skewers soaked in water 30 minutes
3 tablespoons sugar


Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare the barbecue (medium-high heat). Thread 1 piece of each fruit on each of 6 skewers so that the cut sides line up and lay flat. Sprinkle the sugar over the cut sides of the fruit. Let stand until the sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes.

Place the fruit skewers on the grill cut side down. Grill the fruit until it is heated through and caramelized, about 5 minutes. Transfer 1 fruit skewer to each plate and serve. (Over ice cream is even better!)
