Cooking food on the grill is the most ancient way to prepare dinner, and the barbeque enjoys a special relationship with pork. All meats turn out great on the grill, but pork develops an especially wonderful flavor after spending some time with the fire.

This pork recipe combines the gifts of the grill with the next best thing to happen to pork: sweetness. Honey and apricot preserves glaze the pork while it grills, and you prepare whole fresh apricots on the grill as well to provide a nutritious accompaniment for the meat.

Recipe ingredients:

2 whole boneless pork tenderloins (about 1-1/2 pounds)

Salt and pepper to taste
6 firm ripe apricots
1/3 cup apricot preserves
1/2 cup honey
2 Tablespoons dry sherry
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
6 sprigs fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
Black pepper
Start by making the apricot mustard glaze. Blend the apricot preserves, honey, sherry, maple syrup, mustard, parsley, and salt until smooth. Then taste and season with black pepper to suit yourself.
Now heat your grill to a high temperature. Season your pork with salt and pepper and cook on the grill for 10 minutes. Then brush the meat with the apricot mustard glaze and turn the meat. Take the fresh apricot halves and brush them with the glaze on their cut sides. Place the apricots cut side down on the grill around the pork. Continue to grill the pork for another 10 minutes. Turn the meat a couple times and keep brushing on more glaze. The apricots will soften as they cook and be slightly charred but not mushy.
Serve the pork by slicing it into thin medallions and arrange them on plates with apricots.
