Have you ever tried apples on the grill?
Barbequing apples is a great idea as a grilled dessert finale after a dinner around the grill! ... and it's easier than you may think.
Apples hold up well to grilling. Select apples that are ripe, but not overripe.
Most varieties of apples will work well grilling apples on the barbeque.
I like to use Granny Smith apples, but many other types of apples provide equally successful results.
The direct heat of the barbeque or grill draws out and caramelizes the natural sugars in the apples, creating mouth-watering flavour.
Apples can be grilled on their own, or paired with one or more other fruits on the grill. Prepare them for a snack or as an ultimate summer time dessert recipe.
I made (see above) a scrumptious grilled apple dessert by simply adding (store-purchased) caramel and chopped pecans to the grilled apples.
In addition to grilling for desserts, apples are often grilled to accompany meats, such as pork, as well. Apple and pork skewers is a great idea.

Peel and core apples and cut apples into 1/2 inch thick wedges. (If desired, you can leave the peel on, it helps the fruit maintain its original structural integrity.)
Toss the apple slices in melted butter to coat well or brush slices/wedges with vegetable oil (I used canola oil).
Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (About 400° - 450° F).
Place a perforated grill pan over direct medium heat for about 8 - 10 minutes for apple halves, and about 5 minutes for apple slices or wedges to pre-heat the grilling pan.
Add the apple slices to the pan and grill them, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the apples are well browned and tender, about 8 to 10 minutes (on medium heat), turning a couple of times.
Remove the apples from the grill and serve plain, or with a dollop of ice cream, or drizzle with caramel sauce and chopped nuts!
