Prepare grill for cooking.

In a small saucepan over high heat, boil vinegar for 5 minutes to reduce by half; transfer to a bowl. Add butter, honey, mint or basil and salt and whisk until smooth and blended; set glaze aside.

Thread pineapple and mango onto skewers and lightly brush with balsamic glaze. When fire is medium hot (you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 3 to 4 seconds), grill fruit in batches, turning once, until browned and slightly softened, about 5 minutes total. Serve drizzled with any remaining balsamic glaze.
