Fruit Skewers

I saw this on the Today Show this morning, I can't wait to try them. They look so good!!! =]

• 3 firm but ripe nectarines, halved and pitted
• 3 firm but ripe plums, halved and pitted
• 3 firm but ripe apricots, halved and pitted
• 3 tablespoons sugar
• 6 metal skewers or wooden skewers soaked in water 30 minutes
• Nonstick spray
• Vanilla ice cream

Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray and prepare a charcoal or gas grill for medium-high heat or preheat a ridged grill pan over medium-high heat. Thread one piece of each fruit on each of six skewers so that the cut sides line up and lay flat. Sprinkle the sugar over the cut sides of the fruit.
Let them stand until the sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Place the fruit skewers on the grill cut side down. Grill the fruit until it is heated through and caramelized, about 5 minutes. Place one fruit skewer on each plate and serve with a scoop of ice cream if you like.
