Grilled Apricots with Fromage Blanc


(1 vote) 5 1

Grilled fruit is a great finish to a backyard barbecue. The best fruits for grilling in my opinion, are apricots, peaches and nectarines (white are best).

Prepare a fire in an outdoor grill or preheat a gas grill. Mix together the fromage blanc, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and 1 Tbs. of the sugar in a small bowl. Taste and add more sugar if you like. If you have a pastry bag, spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip.Place the apricots, skin side down, on the grill. Grill them until they just begin to soften and brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Arrange them, skin side down, on a serving tray. If you have a pastry bag, pipe a star of the fromage blanc mixture into the center of each apricot half; if not, spoon some of the mixture into the center. Serve immediately.
