The sugars in the fruit will caramelize over the fire, picking up the grill flavor and make any fruit ready to eat in minutes, especially topped with a scope of ice cream. Make sure your grill is good and hot and your cooking grates clean then take a look over these grilled fruit recipes to find your next dessert.
