There may be an apple shortage in New Zealand at the moment, but there is plenty of fresh New Zealand fruit around over summer. One of the delights of being in the land of the long white cloud is its bounty of stonefruit. Peaches, nectarines, apricots and plums are all in abundance, and while they are tasty just as they are, grilling them brings out a stunning depth and intensity of flavour that will surprise you.

Any type of stonefruit works in this recipe - where possible, use slightly underripe fruit so it keeps its shape during grilling and remains juicy and tender.
