August was Missouri Wine’s Vignoles Month and to celebrate, we are sharing a Marinated Grilled Fruit Recipe. Grilled peaches and pears that have been marinated in Boenker Hill’s Vignoles white wine is the perfect end of summer dessert. The recipe and video on how to make it are below.
Vignoles Marinated Grilled Fruit Skewers Recipe
Time: 20 minutes active, 2 hours inactive | Yield: 6-8 servings
2 cups- Missouri Boenker Hill Vignoles (semi-sweet white wine)
½ cup- Marscarpone
2 oz.- Orange juice
1 tbsp- Honey
Fresh mint (Optional garnish)
Soak 12-15 skewers in warm water for 10-30 minutes. Wash and cut the peaches and pears into large slices. (Tip: Ripe but still slightly firm fruit is best for this recipe as it will soften some when marinated and when cooked.) Assemble the skewers, alternating between the peach and pear slices. Marinate the fruit in Missouri Vignoles for 1-2 hours.
While the fruit marinates, make the sauce by whisking together the marscarpone, orange juice and honey, adding additional orange juice until it reaches the desired consistency.
Grill the fruit skewers for 1-2 minutes on each side. Leave them on the grill just long enough to sear both sides; you don’t want to overcook the fruit. Remove the skewers from the grill, allow to cool slightly, drizzle with the sauce, garnish with fresh mint and enjoy!
