pin to 1/8 inch thick then cut into rounds of about 3 inch in diameter.
Lift the rounds and put onto an ungreased or parchment lined cookie

usually a fruit. It is often served over meat or seafood to add a
fruit flavour to the dish. We found that with seafood adding some

deglazing and serve.

it on the barbeque for 35 - 40 minutes, or until cooked. (Courtesy
