This is the perfect way to top off a delicious barbecue with family and friends. It’s simple and easy and everyone can join in on the fun of preparing, grilling and drizzling their own kabobs. Your job is to cut up the fruit, soak the skewers in water and gently heat the chocolate sauce of choice – and oh if you’re into it, toast up some sliced almonds or other nut to sprinkle on top. Now that’s a party we can all enjoy.
4 fresh firm peaches cut into 8 wedges each

1/2 jar Izzybelle chocolate sauce – select – original, raspberry, orange or chili cinnamon
12 wooden skewers soaked for 10 minutes in warm water
1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds or other nut of choice (optional)
Because we are featuring More Than Gourmet products along with a special sale for a short period of time we thought we would adapt another of their wonderful recipes using Jus de Poulet Gold or in plain old English chicken demi glace. (a thick rich chicken based sauce)
This is an easy sauce to prepare with just a few ingredients but oh so delicious over grilled chicken or vegetables. More Than Gourmet describes it as a smooth, luscious sauce with the tang of lemon and fresh herbal notes of dill.
Lemon Dill Sauce
1.5 oz Jus de Poulet Gold by More Than Gourmet
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 tbs fresh dill, chopped
salt and pepper to taste.
1. Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan over a medium low heat. Add the Jus de Poulet and whisk until dissolved.
2. Whisk in the remaining ingredients until the sauce begins to simmer. Adjust the flavor with salt and pepper and serve.
TIPS: This sauce will also go well with grilled fish such as salmon, halibut or swordfish.
