Introducing the Bonfire Fondue…
- Use firm fruits that can be cut into large-sized chunks such as pineapple, peaches, apples, pears, bananas and strawberries.
- To prepare, slice fruit into chunks. Treat apples, pears and bananas with a little lemon juice to keep them from going brown. A drizzle of maple syrup or a sprinkle of sugar over the fruit will caramelize when roasting and provide an even sweeter treat. You could also spice things up a bit by using cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg or allspice.
- Skewer the fruit and roast over the open flame just like you would with a marshmallow.
- Meanwhile, warm a small bowl of dark chocolate over the fire and have it ready to dip your roasted fruit into. (Did you know that dark chocolate is full of antioxidants which may help lower cholesterol and keep your heart healthy?)
Whether it’s the crackle of the flames, the fresh air or the good company, there’s something about cooking (and eating) around a campfire that makes pretty much any food taste better. And adding a nutritious twist to bonfire cuisine doesn’t have to feel like a sacrifice with this delectable Bonfire Fondue!
