Grill your way to 5 a day!

Here at Fruit For The Office we're always up for trying something new, especially when it comes to fruit and getting in that very important 5 a day! We found out that if you grill fruit, it can change the taste experience completely! Grilling fruit reduces the water content, concentrating the sugar and making the fruit extra-sweet and the sugars on the surface of the fruit that touch the grill get caramelised, making them crunchy and delicious! So why not whip out that George Foreman, and try the 10 best fruits to grill for a taste sensation!

Grilling watermelon changes the flavour profile so it goes beautifully with savoury food! Why not try it with a feta salad.

2. Peaches
Grilled peaches are delicious, and are great on their own or with vanilla ice cream!

3. Nectarines
Like peaches, grilled nectarines make a lovely dessert!

4. Bananas
Warm bananas are heavenly, for a tasty grown-up treat why not accompany them with some rum, walnuts and ice cream?

5. Cherries
Grilling sour cherries sweetens them a little, and makes them perfect for use in cocktails!

6. Pineapple
Grilled pineapple is popular on a skewer, but why not let them stand on their own as a delicious dish?

7. Pear
Grilled pears are delicious with honey and chocolate; why not give it a go?

8. Grapefruit
Pink grapefruit is already a popular breakfast item, but why not make it *that* bit more interesting by adding brown sugar to the surface, and grill for some added sweetness? Top with your favourite yoghurt for the best breakfast around!

9. Mango
Mango salsa is a popular accompaniment for pork, so why not go the whole hog (pun intended!) and add grilled mango cubes to your favourite pork dish?

10. Cantaloupe
Grill a cantaloupe melon, add honey yoghurt berries and pistachios for a dish you'll be wanting to eat again and again!

All items mentioned can be added to your office fruit box here.
