Caramelized Grilled Peaches

What you need:

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

4 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Mix together the brown sugar and the melted butter in a large bowl. Add the peaches, plums and bananas to the bowl and toss to coat with the brown sugar mixture.

Take a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil and form into a shallow “pan”. Place the fruits, cut side down, in the foil. Place the foil in a pre-heated grill (medium-high heat) and cook until fruits are browned and caramelized around the edges.

In a medium bowl, combine the maple syrup, cayenne pepper, ground cumin and ground cinnamon. Add the peach, pineapple and banana chunks to the bowl and toss until fruits are coated with the glaze. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 mins.

When ready, thread fruit alternately into skewers. Cook on a pre-heated grill directly over medium-high heat until caramelized, about 2 mins. per side. Best served warm.

When ready, serve warm with Mascarpone cheese mixture.
