Grilled Fruit Compote

Grilled Apple/Pear Compote

1 Bartlett pear (firm, not too ripe)
1 Red Delicious apple (or Granny Smith)
lemon juice
cinnamon
brown sugar
1 TBS apple juice
1 TBS honey

Peel apple and pear, immediately rub with lemon juice to prevent browning of the fruit. Cut apple and pear in half, rubbing cut side with more lemon juice. Sprinkle each half of the fruit, both sides, with cinnamon and brown sugar (I used Sugar Twin Brown Sugar Substitute).

Place fruit on a medium-hot grill (350-375) cut side down. Grill for approximately three minutes, flip fruit and grill for another three minutes. We are not trying to 'cook' the fruit, but just get some grill marks and to melt the sugar.

Place the fruit into a food processor and chop to your desired texture. Stir in the apple juice and the honey. Mix well; serve chilled or at room temperature.

mmmmmmmmmmmm! That's the only way I can eat the slices. Yum Yum Yum!!
Ever tried a grilled banana (cut lengthwise)? With brown sugar of course. Over vanilla ice cream with a splash of good rum over the top. Yum!
