Grilled Stone Fruit

Ashley Muller


I just love stone fruits such as peaches or nectarines, apricots and plums. When you grill these types of fruits it gives them a smokey, slightly charred flavor that is a perfect match for their natural sweetness.

1 c
vanilla yogurt
stone fruit (your choice)
1 Tbsp
fresh squeezed orange juice
zest of one orange
4 Tbsp
pure maple syrup

Directions Step-By-Step

Line a strainer with 2 sheets unbleached paper towels or cheesecloth set over a bowl. Place yogurt in strainer and let the liquid drain off the yogurt. This will take about 1 hour.
Preheat grill on high heat. Cut fruit in half and remove pits. Turn flame to medium high and place fruit cut side down. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes depending on your grill.
Add the zest (I prefer my zest really small so I use a microplane)and orange juice to the strained yogurt and mix.
Divide fruit between 4 plates. Top each pair with 1/4 c. yogurt mixture and 1 tablespoon maple syrup. Garnish with orange zest.
Note: Can be used as a brunch item, a breakfast, snack or even a side dish at dinner.
