Grilled Plums with Thyme-Infused Honey, Blue Cheese, and Walnuts

Servings 6 

Preparation Time 30 minutes  

Grill Time  3 minutes    


  • 1⁄3 Cup Honey
  • 1 Sprig Fresh Thyme 
  • 6 Ripe, yet Firm, Large Black or Red Plums (Halved)
  • 6 tbsp Crumbled Blue Cheese
  • 6 tbsp Walnut Pieces (Toasted)


1. In a small saucepan combine honey and thyme then bring it to boil over the medium heat. Afterwards, remove it from heat and set it aside to steep for nearly 10 minutes.

2. Brush the cut sides of plum halves with some of the honey-thyme mixtures.

3. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill plums from the cut sides down put it on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium-high heat for three to five minutes (three minutes are sometimes sufficient) or wait until it becomes warm and marked. Transfer the cooked plums into a platter from the cut sides up.

4. Sprinkle the warm plums with some blue cheese and walnuts. Drizzle it with the remaining honey-thyme mixture and serve warm and plumpy. 

Tip: You can restore the left honey and thyme mixture into the freezer for some other grill day and it can also go nicely with some other fruit grill too. Be Creative.
