J and I are traveling this weekend to visit friends and family for the long holiday weekend. I’ll be posting about some of our food adventures in the coming days, but for a quick, holiday-weekend-themed post, I thought I’d share this link to tips on grilling out from food guru Alton Brown via NPR’s food blog, The Salt. Despite all the tasty desserts I’ve had in the last couple days, the tip that had me salivating the most was the following:
Best Fruit To Grill? Peaches are Brown’s favorite. He halves the fruit and lightly brushes the cut flesh with oil before searing them. He then turns them upside down, brushes them with a mixture of honey and bourbon and lets them “percolate” before serving with ice cream. Brown also recommends grilling pineapples, underripe bananas, papayas and mangoes.
