What You’ll Need
Besides the fruit of your choice, there are a few things you’ll need to start grilling. Whichever way you choose, just make sure to follow our grill safety tips.
Grill Basket – Using a grill basket is the easiest way to cook smaller pieces of fruit. Simply throw in the fruit and grill away.
Skewers – If you want to make fruit kebobs, you can use skewers. This works best for large chunks of fruit, like pineapple and strawberries.
Gas or Charcoal Grill – Obviously you need a grill. Some pieces of fruit can be cut large enough to simply grill right on the grill grates.
