Summer Grilling Roundup

Summer Grilling Roundup

With this summer grilling roundup, you can avoid heating your home and cook in the open air instead. Foods made on the grill can be lower in calories than those cooked on a stovetop and have a delicious smokiness that your traditional range won’t provide. Using our Eastern Shore Honey on the grill gives your food a mellow sweetness that enhances savory meats and vegetables.

Summertime is nice and hot, but your kitchen doesn’t have to be!

When grilling, it’s important to note that gas is healthier than charcoal. Charcoal grills release more carbon than gas and can (potentially) add some chemical compounds to your food if overly “charred.” Although you would have to consume a lot of char-grilled foods to see adverse effects, it’s best advised to use gas over charcoal when possible.

Our Top Summer Grilling Recipes

One of our favorite grilled recipes is this Grilled Honey Glazed Chicken. The honey caramelizes and creates a deep rich flavor. This excellent weekend meal can be paired with any grilled veggie. It’s as easy to make as it is delicious.

Another delicious and healthy way to prepare grilled chicken is by making Kabobs with chicken breast. They’re light, healthy, and a breeze to make!

This BBQ Brisket recipe made with our special honey BBQ sauce is a hearty way to feed weekend guests. When simmered with indirect heat, the brisket is moist and tender. Great for sandwiches. One of our favorites is a brisket sandwich served with healthy homemade slaw.

Artichokes are a delicacy that you definitely shouldn’t pass up. They dazzle your guests. Our Grilled Artichokes with Thai Honey Vinaigrette take a little bit of prep work to get ready, but they’re delicious and very well worth the time.

Grilled Summer Vegetables are healthy and quick to prepare, and with the summer harvest in full swing, you have many options to choose from. This dish’s beauty is that you can’t mess it up! Our guests go crazy over thick-cut onions on the grill. It reminds them of onion rings without any of the unhealthy parts.

Grilling fruit is so sexy and so easy for two or twenty.

Keep the grill on during dinner, and let all the previous grill remnants burn off. When ready, slice up fresh-cut pineapple in thick slices, peaches, or plums, remove the pit, and place the flesh on the grill. Get a good char, flip, and drizzle with honey. Honey Grilled Peaches are our favorite. The flavors come together and offer a wonderful refreshment to your palette. Serve with your favorite ice cream or sorbet.
