These Grilled Fruit Skewers with Honey Cinnamon Glaze are a summertime treat. If you’ve never grilled fruit make this the summer you try it.
Grilling is a good way to make the most of the nice weather outside and we grill everything from salad to dessert. Fruit skewers can be made in advance and although they are delicious on their own, cooking fruit on the grill adds an extra dimension to the taste. A little bit of char, the juiciness of the fruit and the extra sweetness from a honey cinnamon glaze makes for a fabulous and simple dessert.

Fruit is sweet on it’s own so it can be served without the glaze. For me to consider it a dessert for company I feel like it should have the glaze as well as some creamy vanilla ice cream to perfectly complement the textures and taste.
Later in the summer I might skip the glaze and simply drizzle grilled fruit (especially peaches) with my homemade raspberry sauce. I make it once every summer using raspberries from my garden and year after year it seems like a decadent treat.
Do you have a reusable grilling sheet? Similar to the reusable baking sheets for the oven, they are specifically designed to use on a barbecue. They provide a clean cooking surface, can be cut to any size you want and the cooked food still has nice grill marks. These are ideal for anyone concerned about cross contamination on any kind of grill. I have the Cookina Reusable Grilling Sheet.
The reusable grilling sheet is a fabulous but there are a few extra items that make it easy to throw together a fabulous presentation. Here are a few ideas:
Platters can be used to hold a lot of food but don’t forget to use them for smaller gatherings too. Arrange the food more artfully and you have a beautiful, colourful presentation with minimal effort.
