Author Notes

Berries mixed with lemon zest and juice, thyme, sugar, and honey plump up and get juicy, warm, and sweet on the grill. I've always loved grilled fruit AND 'girl scout packets' (foil packets filled with meat and potatoes and grilled over an open flame... which I learned in girl scout camp when I was a 'Brownie'). A recent issue of Food & Wine magazine inspired me to combine the grilled fruit and foil packet idea. Serve over vanilla ice cream, grilled pound cake slices, or even grilled fish. —Loves Food Loves to Eat
