Ingredients:

Honey Glaze:
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted Butter, melted
1/4 cup Honey
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed Lime juice (from 1 to 2 limes)

Fruit:
2 Bananas
2 Peaches
2 Nectarines
2 Plums
1 Pineapple

Preparation:

1. Stir together all of the honey glaze ingredients until smooth.
2. For grilled peaches, nectarines, plums: halve the fruit and remove the pits. 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.
3. For grilled pineapple: Cut off the top and the peel. Slice the fruit into 3/4 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 min., turning once halfway through.
4. For grilled bananas: Peel the bananas, and slice in half crosswise and then lengthwise (you will have 4 pieces, each about 4 inches long and 1/2 inch thick). Add a pinch of ground cinnamon to the remaining honey glaze. Using a pastry brush, coat the banana pieces with the glaze. Grill over direct medium heat for 6-8 min., turning gently, until light brown.
