Easy // 15 mins prep + 10 mins grill // 2 Quarts
The tasty flavors of honey & tequila roasted fruit celebrate the summer heat. Roast these fruits on the grill in just a few mins & for that smoky flavor. Get a perforated grill rack for easy grilling. Make sure to include several citrus fruits.
- 4 Quarts Favorite Harvest Fruit, large chunks
- (I used pineapple, apricots, black plums, pears, blood orange, lime, grapefruit)
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
- 2/3 Cup Favorite Tequila or Lemonade for kids version
- 1/3 Cup Honey
- 1/4 Cup Favorite Jam (I used organic lingonberry from IKEA for its tart flavor & bright red color)
- (Opt) 1-2 Tbs Butter
- Optional Additions
- Favorite Sorbets & Ice Creams
- Fresh Berries
Prep out the fruit into large chunks. For the pears & stone fruit, I cut them into quarters. Quarter the citrus, remove any seeds. Marinate the fruit in the honey, salt & tequila for as long as possible, or even better overnight and up to 48 hours in the fridge.
Strain the fruity tequila mix into a skillet. Add in the jam & simmer to reduce by half until thick and bubbly. Stir in the optional butter. Set aside while you grill the fruit.
Roast in a hot 450 oven for about 30 mins. Or better yet grill them up on the BBQ in about 5-10 mins. Let cool on a sheet pan. Squeeze the roasted citrus juice into the sauce. Roasted citrus are sooooo juicy & flavorful.
Serve grandly in margarita glasses w/ lemon & raspberry sorbets, cookies & sauce on the top & along side. Add any remaining fruit to chilled red & white wine for perhaps the most delish Mexican sangria you’ve ever had!
