A Week of Wednesdays: Day 2

I have not made this recipe YET...but it is on my list for this year's grilling season! It sounds really yummy...if you make it soon, let me know what you think! And I think circle-shaped skewers (pictured above) are such a great idea...much easier to fit on a plate than the traditional type, don't you think? You can find some here and here and I'm sure in so many other places!

Fruit Skewers with Vin Santo Glaze

1 cup vin santo (marsala wine)
1 4-inch long orange rind strip
1/4 cup sugar
1 2-inch cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon butter

1 cup peaches, cubed and peeled (about 2 medium peaches)
1 cup plums, cubed (about 4 plums)
3/4 cup green grapes
3/4 cup sweet cherries, pitted

1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
2 Tablespoons orange blossom honey
1 teaspoon grated orange rind

1. Prepare grill.

2. Glaze: Combine first four ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook 15 minutes or until reduced to 1/3 cup. Remove and discard rind and cinnamon stick. Add butter, stirring with a whisk. Remove from heat; keep warm.

3. Skewers: Thread fruit alternately onto each of 8 8-inch skewers; brush with 2 tablespoons of glaze, reserving remaining glaze. Place on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from grill.

4. Cheese: Combine ricotta, honey, and orange rind and stir well. Spoon 3/4 Tablespoon glaze onto each of four plates and top with two skewers per plate. Spoon 1/4 cup cheese on each plate.

Serves 4.
