Fruit doesn't have to be boring. Brushing the summer's best with butter, bourbon and honey adds flavour and helps caramelize it when it's grilled. For best results, use fruit that is ripe but still firm so it holds its shape on the grill. Crème fraîche is rich and delicious, but Greek yogurt or sour cream are also good choices.
