Did you know that you can find a whole new world of summer flavors by grilling fruit? Grilled slices of pineapple or peaches, apples, bananas or even strawberries (on skewers or in foil) make great sides to any summer dish, or even as a stand-alone snack. The natural sugars in fruit will caramelize on the grill and turn brown, enhancing the sweetness.  In just 10 to 15 minutes, you can be serving grilled fruits over ice cream, as a side to your favorite grilled fish or meats, or all by themselves.  You can even add them to your favorite homemade salsas or marinades.

In this fun demonstration, you will learn:

What to look for when buying fresh pineapples and peaches

How to properly cut fruits for grilling

How to grill the fruit and how to know when it’s done.

This demonstration is given by: Peter Brown, an Attleboro resident and local chef who loves to explore a wide range of flavors and cooking approaches using fresh local and seasonal ingredients; and A Teachable Feast, an effort by Attleboro resident and writer Margie Kelley to bring food knowledge to people in fun and interesting ways.
