BBQ Recipe - Aromatic Fruit Parcels

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 10 mins

Use any combination of fruit you like for this simple barbecued dessert. Do use fresh root ginger as it adds a fresh, zingy flavour that works well with star anise.


  1. Peel and cut fruit into large chunks.
  2. Place in a bowl with lemon juice, grated ginger and demerara sugar, mix well.
  3. Cut aluminium foil into squares roughly 20cm by 20cm, use 2 pieces per parcel.
  4. Spread a little soft butter in the middle of foil and place a piece of star anise on the butter.
  5. Pile a mixture of fruit in the centre of the foil.
  6. Pick up each corner of the foil and scrunch up to make a parcel which opens at the top.
  7. Cook on a hot barbecue for 5 minutes and serve with a topping of ice cream in the parcels.
