If it’s the New Year, it has to be barbecues. How else do you beat the cold, eat all those amazing meats in one meal and drink yourself silly? :) This recipe has been pulled out of my recipe book for Skie Grille, my first restaurant. It was always a hit with the crowd. The warm sweet fruit blending in with the cold creamy ice cream…Delicious.
