Today is Labor Day. Which means, aside from paying our respects to those who have toiled to make this country great, we’re also bidding an unofficial goodbye to summer…and grilling season. But if you live somewhere where the sun is going to keep shining for another few weeks, you may want to hold off on packing in the barbecue. Because September brings a seasonal bounty that’s perfect for these grilled fruit recipes.
Grilled veggies have had a serious moment this year, but fruit is just as excellent for throwing on the barbecue. Seasonal September fruits like nectarines, pears, and figs are the perfect way to merge the newness of fall with the tasty harvest of summer. And they’re not just for dessert, either.
Check out these end-of-summer grilled fruit recipes from some of our favorite bloggers, and make room for a little extra produce over your briquets this month. Some of these call for a grill pan, rather than an actual barbecue, but they’re all definitely able to be taken outside and thrown on the real rack.
