Grilled peaches with berries recipe
- 3 medium ripe peaches, halved and pitted
- 1 cup fresh blueberries and raspberries
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Layer 3 thicknesses of heavy-duty alfoil, 30cm square, on top of each other. Repeat so you have 3 squares for each peach.
- Place two peach halves, cut side up, on one of the foil squares. Top with blueberries, honey, butter and lemon juice. Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.
- Grill, covered, over medium-low heat for 18-20 minutes or until tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape before you tuck in!
Strawberry & Marshmallow skewers
This one is dead easy – just put strawberries and marshmallows on skewers and grill them in the fire! For a super special touch, sit strawberries in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and a tablespoon of brown sugar. It’s scarily good.
Grilled nutmeg pineapples with vanilla ice cream
- 2 fresh pineapples
- 2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup butter, divided
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 3 cups vanilla ice cream
- Peel, core and cut each pineapple into six spears. In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter with honey and nutmeg. Brush over pineapple. Cover with foil and throw into the edge of the fire for 7-10 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally.
- Remove from the heat; Serve with ice cream.
- 4 ripe yellow bananas
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- Desiccated coconut
- ½ cup mini marshmallows
- In the peel, slice banana lengthwise, being careful not to slice all the way through the banana. Pry open sliced pocket and stuff with 1/4 of the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Top with desiccated coconut and marshmallow. Repeat with remaining 3 bananas.
- Place a metal grilling rack into the fire, or wrap each banana with foil, leaving the marshmallow exposed. Place bananas into the fire and cook until the bananas have completely softened and peels have blackened, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the fire, let cool for 5 minutes, then eat with a spoon.
