Summer Grilling Roundup

With this summer grilling roundup, you can avoid heating up your home and cook in the open air instead. Foods made on the grill can be lower in calories than those cooked on a stovetop and have a delicious smokiness that your traditional range won’t provide. Using our Eastern Shore Honey on the grill gives your food a mellow sweetness that enhances savory meats and vegetables.

Summertime is nice and hot, but your kitchen doesn’t have to be!

When grilling, it’s important to note that gas is healthier option than charcoal. Charcoal grills release more carbon than gas, and they can (potentially) add some chemical compounds to your food, if overly “charred”. Although you would have to consume a lot of char-grilled foods to see adverse effects, it’s best advised to use gas over charcoal when possible.

Grilling fruit is so sexy and so easy. For two or twenty.

Keep the grill on during dinner and let all the previous grill remnants burn off. When you’re ready, slice up fresh-cut pineapple in thick slices or peaches or plums, remove the pit and place flesh side down on the grill. Get a good char, flip, and drizzle with honey. Honey Grilled Peaches are our favorite. The flavors come together and offer a wonderful refreshment to your palette. Serve with your favorite ice cream or sorbet.
