Fire pit grilled Fruit Skewers With Spicy Maple Cumin Glaze

Let's face it, often times when people think of barbeque, they think of high-fat meat and sauces with lots of calories. But in actuality, when you cook on fire pit grills, there is no added fat involved. What you do get, is a richer flavor and a rich experience. And with creative recipes, cooking on an outdoor grilling table can mean meals that are extremely healthy, nutritious, and utterly delicious. 

These charcoal-grilled fruit skewers, have a picante zing that makes eating fruit unique and exciting. Fire pit grilled fruit skewers can be served as a side dish or a dessert, and you can use any of your favorite fruits. Paired with lighter meats like chicken or fish, your entire meal becomes a super healthy outdoor table grill feast.


  • Glaze1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups fruit chunks such as pineapple, peaches, and/or bananas

Build a charcoal fire for direct table grilling. Soak the bamboo skewers in a bowl of water and set aside. Combine the glaze ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well. Add the fruit and toss gently to coat with the glaze. Cover and refrigerate.

Thread the fruit on the soaked skewers, alternating each fruit type. Place the skewers on the Jag Grill and cook directly over medium-high heat for 1 1/2 minutes on each side, or until browned and caramelized. Serve warm.
