To create even more excitement at the table, vary the fruits to surprise your guests with their favorites. Serve this simple dish as an unusual dessert or as the start of a delicious spring or summer brunch. A bit of advice for the grill cook: be sure the grill rates are very clean and hot to keep the fruit from sticking.

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • Canola oil
  • 2 large peaches or nectarines, pitted and cut into thick wedges
  • 2 ripe but firm bananas, peeled, halved lengthwise then crosswise
  • 1 pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into thick slices

Whisk together juice, sugar and zest in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until reduced by half, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside to let cool completely.

Meanwhile, grease grill grates with oil and preheat to medium high heat. Working in batches, arrange peaches, bananas and pineapple on grill in a single layer and cook, carefully flipping once, until just hot throughout and golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer fruit to bowls, drizzle with sauce and serve.
