Plum and Blackberry Skewers with Balsamic Glaze

Stone fruits and balsamic glazes create winning combinations. Try halved apricots or nectarine wedges in place of the plums. Pitted cherries can also fill in sweetly for the blackberries.

Ingredients

  • 3 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 12 large blackberries, divided
  • 4 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cardamom, divided
  • 8 small Italian or sugar plums, halved lengthwise and pitted

Preparation

1 | Preheat grill to medium-high, and brush grill grates with 1 tsp. oil.

2 | Combine 4 blackberries, balsamic vinegar, and 1 pinch cardamom in small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until reduced by half, mashing blackberries with fork. Remove from heat, and cover to keep warm.
