Happy Hour Fruit

by Jill
(Milwaukee, WI USA)

Ingredients
1/4 cup bourbon
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar, packed firmly
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup water
Assorted fruit cut in 1/2 (peaches, pears, plums, pineapples)
Directions
Put the bourbon into a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring it to a boil. Boil for 1 minute to burn off the alcohol. Add the butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, and water. Bring to a boil whisking until all the sugar is dissolved. Simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool to thicken. Toss fruit with the glaze to coat or brush glaze over fruit with a pastry brush. Place fruit on the grill and turn once when light grill marks appear. Serve on a kabob or with ice cream (drizzle the remaining glaze over the fruit).
