Grilled Watermelon

Grilled Watermelon and Peaches

I was reading Mark Bittman’s article on unusual vegetable grilling, and at the end of a very grilling meal I tried to grill some watermelon and peaches.  The watermelon’s flavor was completely changed.  Everyone said it was very different… but they weren’t sure they liked it. No one took more than a few bites.  It tasted a lot like pumpkin, I think, which is all well and good but we were in the mood for dessert.  Grilled watermelon isn’t dessert, as Bittman makes pretty clear.  So it was my own fault.

The peaches were better, but I probably didn’t do them well.  They more or less tasted like… cooked peaches, like you’d expect to find in a peach pie or something.  Meh.
