Grilled fruit is great, but this recipe should include pineapple! Pineapple is so delicious grilled. It sort of caramelizes it and brings out more flavor and sweetness with savor undertones. Grilling takes out the bitter bite of the kumquats, too. Kumquats are in season in winter, so for those year round grillers, try this in winter!
