To Grill With Glazes
For all the recipes listed here, combine the ingredients in a small bowl. Cook 2 pounds of poultry, meat, seafood, or vegetables on a lightly oiled grill. (For cooking times, see How Long Should You Grill Your Food?.) When the food has 5 to 10 minutes left to cook, baste it with the glaze and turn it frequently to create a glossy crust.
- Glazes make great dipping sauces to serve at the table along with your food. Simply make a little extra and set aside before grilling.
- Resist the urge to apply a glaze early in the cooking process: The sugars in the sauce will burn before the food cooks through.
