This was really good. I wouldn't hesitate to serve this to company! I made it during in the wintertime, so I had to use my oven broiler instead of the outdoor grill. But I don't think it mattered much. The only thing I would do differently is omit the crystalized ginger because I thought it left a bitter aftertaste. Or who knows, maybe it was the brand I bought. But I thought it just didn't work well with all those lovely, sweet summer fruits. Perhaps a sprinkling of ground ginger might be better than crystalized ginger. The selection of fruits used in this dish--and the brandied sauce that accompanies them--offered a perfectly sweet dessert in and of itself. But it was all the more perfect over a hefty scoop of vanilla ice cream. I will definitely keep this in mind for the grill next summer. What a perfect summer treat!
