It seems hard to believe, but Labour Day weekend is upon us already! As most of us enjoy a three-day weekend, we get to fire up the barbecue one last time to celebrate the end of summer and some much-needed time off. Whether you’re having burgers, hot dogs or kabobs, it’s always good to leave a little room for dessert! And as long as the grill is on, why not use it to make that dessert?
Grilling is a great way to bring out flavours in late summer fruit like peaches, nectarines or plums. It also works well for tropical fruit such as mangoes. Top the fruit with some sweetened ricotta cheese and you have a simple but satisfying treat. If you so choose, this recipe can be made with Tilray Drops to yield a potency of approximately 10 mg of active cannabinoids per serving (2 tablespoons).*
