Method

 
1. Grill fruit slices on a hot grill, turning occasionally to prevent burning. Remove and arrange on a platter.
2.To make rum sauce: Heat sugar, rum and butter in a small saucepan over a moderate heat. Stir until sugar has dissolved (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat and spoon over grilled fruits.
3. For fondue: Place all ingredients except granadilla and walnuts in a heat-proof bowl set above a saucepan of gently simmering water. (Ensure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water or the chocolate may become grainy.) Leave it there for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until chocolate has melted and the sauce is smooth. Remove pan from heat, pour fondue into a small bowl and keep warm.
4. To serve: Drizzle granadilla pulp over grilled fruits and arrange slices on a platter, together with bowl of chocolate fondue. Place chopped walnuts in a small bowl and serve alongside fruit.
5. To eat: Dip fruit into fondue, then into crushed nuts and pop straight into your mouth!

Tip of the day

 
White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
