Grilled Mixed Fruit
A great way to use up all the fruit in the fruit bowl.
For the simple syrup: 1) In a saucepan, combine water and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Take pan off heat and cool the syrup before using.
2) Any extra cooled syrup can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
For the mixed fruits: 1) Place a griddle pan over medium-high heat.
2) In a medium bowl, toss the fruit in the sugar to coat. Griddle over medium heat, until a golden crust begins to form on the fruit, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
3) In another medium bowl, mix together the mint, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Arrange the fruit on a serving platter, drizzle the mint syrup over top, and serve.
