A BBQ is tremendous, even in winter, even in the cold. We use it more than in non-summer months than in the heat.

If you haven’t see it already, take a look at Part 1 of this BBQ series to see Grilled Fennel with Lemon and Parmesan and Grilled Broccoli with Preserved Lemon and Part 2 of this BBQ Series to see Roasted Carrots with Pomegranate Molasses, Melty Cheese and Baked Bananas. You can also browse the complete BBQ Series of recipes, including Baked Garlicky Eggplant, Baked Apricots, and Hot Tomato Salad. Find inspiration in our Winter recipes here and here.

Pear Marinade

First, marinade your pears in a mix of rosemary, chilli and lemon juice.

Roasted Grapes

An easy and surprisingly delicious dish. I first heard of roasted grapes recently when an Italian friend was telling me how he made a salad with them.

Roast red or black grapes with plenty of olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Add hardy herbs like thyme and rosemary. These savory elements will balance the sugars in the grapes.

Drizzle the grapes with olive oil, salt, black pepper, a little thyme. Mix so grapes are coated with the oil and flavourings.

Place on the grill and roast until done.

Baked Strawberries

A sweet dish to finish, an old old favourite, baked strawberries. I have adapted the recipe for the BBQ. This time they were cooked with orange juice, black pepper, a tiny pinch salt, cardamom and a little rosemary.

They were amazing. Cooked them in an oven proof dish placed on a roasting rack to lower the direct heat a little. Cover loosely with foil so that they have a lid while they cook (optional). You can experiment with and without a lid, and see what you like best.  Serve and enjoy.
