  • Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • cinnamon

Instructions
  1. Stir together all of the honey glaze ingredients until smooth.

  3. Using a pastry brush, coat the banana pieces with the glaze.
  4. Grill over direct medium heat for 6-8 min., turning gently, until light brown.
  5. For grilled peaches, nectarines, plums: halve the fruit and remove the pits.
  6. Toss the fruit gently in a bowl with the honey glaze. Grill, cut side down, over direct medium heat for 10-12 minutes, turning after 7 or 8 min.
  7. For grilled pineapple: Cut off the top and the peel. Slice the fruit into ¾ inch-thick rounds. Using a pastry brush, coat both sides of each slice with the glaze. Grill over direct medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once halfway through.
