What is it about cooking fruit that turns it from a snack to a decadent dessert? Maybe it’s the caramelizing of the sugars in the fruit? Maybe the sauces one feels compelled to drizzle over the finished product? Maybe it’s just that summer alchemy of grilling on a warm evening, making something more than what it was before?
2 ripe plums, sliced in half, pits removed
2 tablespoons Laychee, crème fraîche, or vanilla ice cream
drizzle of honey
Warm up the grill to medium-high heat. Place plums face down and cook two minutes. Flip over and cook another minute. If the plums are still firm, flip once more face down for two more minutes.
Spoon choice of creamy goodness into the divot of each plum, drizzle with honey, and serve while still warm — perhaps with a small glass of Rosenblum’s Désirée Chocolate Dessert Wine for even more decadence?
