Grilled Balsamic & Ginger Glazed Plums Recipe

The July 4th holiday is coming up next weekend and I am pretty excited for it to arrive. This year we will be hosting a backyard barbecue and are expecting over 25 guests! We plan on grilling up a feast for all that will be here!

One of the things I love about celebrating our National Independence Day is getting together with all of our friends and family. Our lives are so busy these days, we look for every opportunity that we can get to visit with one another!
The following recipe and photograph is courtesy of eMeals. The recipe makes 6 hearty servings. Looks like the perfect grilled dessert to me!!!
