Fruit is one of the easiest foods to grill, yet seems to be something people never think about putting on the grill. When you grill fruit, the water evaporates and the sugars are concentrated. The sugars on the surface of the fruit that touch the grill get caramelized, creating a sweet, delicious and healthy treat. Almost any fruit can be grilled; large fruits like peaches, bananas, pineapples, pears and watermelon can be sliced and placed directly on the grill. Smaller fruits, like strawberries and blueberries, need to be placed onto skewers or in a grill basket.
Let's face it, those little packets you add water to are easy, but they really are not hot chocolate. But in a pinch, or if you are short of time, an amendment or two to that packaged mix will greatly enhance the flavor of your drink. Here are some simple ingredients to add some zip to that dull package of hot chocolate: • Stir your hot chocolate with a candy cane to give it a hint of peppermint. • Add a teaspoon of cinnamon or stir with a cinnamon stick.
