Fresh Fruit Dessert Kabobs

Man, oh, man! Does grilling fruit ever work for me! I especially like strawberries, because when the heat of a rocket-hot grill starts to work its magic on the sugars in the berries, it's just amazing! Peaches also work great on the grill! Use your imagination on this one, because you will never be disappointed!

  • Assorted fruit chunks (strawberries, bananas, apples, pears, peaches, ...
  • 1 Tbs white sugar
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • dash of cinnamon, to taste
  • dash of powdered sugar, to taste


Mix the wine and white sugar (not the powdered sugar) in a sauce pan and reduce it to a nice glaze.

Drop the fresh-cut fruit in the lemon juice and then remove. Skewer the fruit on kabob sticks with the mint leaves in-between the fruit.

Grill the kabobs on high heat. Brush the glaze on the fruit while it grills, about 2-4 minutes each side (depending on the size of the chunks). The smell will be powerful and fruity.

Serve on a fruit plate for dessert. Dash with powdered sugar and cinnamon before serving.
