Life can be even sweeter with BBQ'd fruit. So forget the sausages and ditch the burgers. It's time to get your grill on and prepare for some sweet moments of joy.

1. Bananas

They're basically sweet yellow sausages, only bendier. So keep the skins on and cut them down the middle. They're ready when the skins turn black and the rest goes caramelly.

2. Pineapple

Slice them into rings and, yup - you've got sweet Caribbean 'burgers'.

4. Watermelon

Cut up a watermelon into steak-sized pieces and leave them to sizzle. (And just like a real steak you can even serve it with salsa.)

3. The humble apple

See? They don't even have to be tropical fruits. Dip some apple slices into a mix of lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar. Give them a few minutes on the barbecue and KAZAM! - apples in awesome sauce.

5. Strawberries ... on a kebab

Skewer a row of them or they'll fall through the grill and be lost FOREVER. If you've got some spare marshmallows, now's the time to make the ultimate 'sweet shish'.

6. Peaches

So delicious you may actually forget the word 'burger'. Cut them in half, pluck out the stone and they're ready to go.

7. Mango

You can serve it with fish or with ice cream. But not both at the same time.

8. Rhubarb

By this point you'll be a fruit barbecuing expert. The very idea of grilling meat will seem strange and wrong. Like with the mango, barbecued rhubarb can also sweeten up a savoury pork dish.

9. Coconut

The ultimate. Cook it flesh-side down and serve with a dark chocolate sauce. You'll think the pigeons in your garden are exotic parrots. Sweet.
