Grilled Apples and Oranges

With our kitchen renovation underway, we’ve been digging a lot of frozen chili out of the freezer, hitting the deli hard and of course grilling. Most grilled oranges call for removing the pith, but when you’re cutting board is a paper plate you’re not going to mess around with that nonsense. We also worried the oranges would fall through the grill slots. No grill baskets in this house. We thought that all in all they turned out well, but we sure wished it was the height of summer and we had some fresh mint.

Grilled Apples and Oranges

  • 1 large navel orange, sliced
  • 1 apple (griller’s choice), sliced and cored
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 oz Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp melted butter

Whisk liquor, butter, juice and honey together in a large bowl. Stir in fruit and refrigerate for up to two hours or all day for all we care. We didn’t write the rules of grilled fruit. Grill over medium to high heat until tender and starting to char, about two minutes on each side.

    Two days ago I stuck a grocery store-bought mint sprig in my indoor herb pot, presto: fresh mint! Grilled orange sounds delicious.

    I like that I don’t have to choose between apples and oranges for this recipe.

  5. Grilled fruit is really great isn’t it? I often grill apples or peaches in the summer…sometimes I just stick slices under the broiler. The heat seems to bring out the natural sweetness. Pears are great as well. I have not done oranges, but will try soon.
