Grilled fruit desserts

Pomelo a la parrilla con mascarpone

Grilled grapefruit with mascarpone

I am doing a cooking course at a culinary school, and one of our first activities was to create different desserts which involved grilling fruit. Fruit is perfect for the grill because it is so easy to prepare and the heat of the grill whether, induction, electric, gas or charcoal, will add fantastic flavor to any fruit. The natural sugars in the fruit will caramelize over the fire, concentrating the flavors by reducing the water. The process is also very simple: you will need sliced fruit, and some melted butter to prepare the most basic grilled fruit. Hard fruits like apples, and pineapples are the easiest to grill since they hold their shape and texture while cooking. Softer fruits like peaches, or plums will become too soft if overcooked. You will need to be more attentive of this kind of fruit,and if you are preparing them on a charcoal grill, I suggest you using aluminim foil to keep the fruits from falling through the grilling racks.

With many fruits you can simply cut them in half and, with most fruits you can leave the peels on. This helps hold them together whether you eat the skin or not. It is best to grill fruit over medium heat on a very clean cooking grate. To keep the fruit from sticking to the grill, lightly brush them with melted butter. You can also try marinating the fruits in a combination of your favorite spices and your favorite alcohols. A mixture of rum, brown sugar, cinnamon, honey, vanilla,… Let your imagination run wild and you’ll find what a great addition grilled fruits can be!!!

    I bet if you substituted coconut oil instead of butter it would be even more fabulous–I love coconut oil in almost everything!

    The beauty about implementing a php shopping cart is that
    it does not use any kind of database. For those who are not
    familiar with the site, Multiply is a social networking site
    where you have your own profile, add friends and send messages
    to them. Are they focused on helping customers, or on other things.

    This is obvious to a lot of people, but not so obvious to so
    many more. Your web designer will make your web site attractive to look at and your SEO expert will get your
    site looked at by more people, which means more potential customers.
    It is not only enough to have people engaging and sharing your
    SEO content on the various social media platforms in place (such as Facebook) – the number of
    times that it is actually shared is also important for SEO.

    Bring your knees toward your chest until they are at a 90 degree angle.
    Perhaps the best part about finding these Pilates ball exercises online is that they are free.
    Lay on the mat, hands down by your sides, feet on the ball with legs out straight (knees soft).

    The backend part of your company supports these profit centers.
    As the culture of internet slang grew, it took on new origins from pop culture or video games and television.
    Daily, even hourly, businesses can see how many individuals clicked on their ads and the traffic that is being driven to their website.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
