Try These Simple Recipes for National Grilling Month

Happy National Grilling month everyone! Are you looking for some alternative grilling recipes to try out this month? Well look no further, Libby’s® Canned Fruit and Vegetables are exactly what you need on hand this month to create the best grilled meal ever!


Grilling month is the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and family - so let’s make sure that we provide the most delicious foods which are suitable for everyone at the party. At Libby’s®, we want to make cooking as fun, easy and affordable as possible, and when it comes to grilling, we have exactly what you need to bring all the flavors and keep costs low.


One of our favorite grilling month ingredients at Libby’s® are the Apricot Halves (in Pear Juice). Apricot halves are perfect for the summertime and bring such a unique flavor to any meal, even the name can make your mouth water! Apricots can also be paired delightfully with an array of different foods, especially with grilled meat and vegetables.


The great thing about apricots is that they are rich in fiber, Vitamin A,  and Vitamin C. Apricot’s satisfying components can be used in a range of recipes, so make sure that you get out to the store and stock up on Libby’s® Apricot Halves this month. 


Here are some ways you can use Libby’s® Apricot Halves this grilling month:

  1. Apricot Marinade – Libby’s® Apricot Halves can be used to make a delicious marinade to marinate any type of meat, especially chicken and pork. It provides a sticky, sweet flavor and tastes delicious!
  2. Apricot Chutney – Libby’s® Apricot Halves can also be used to make a chutney which goes deliciously with grilled meat and especially well with grilled cheese, which is a great thing to have at a grilling party for the kids.
  3. Apricot Salad – We all love a good salad to go with all our grilled goods. Libby’s® Apricot Halves slot perfectly into any salad, and it’s so easy, just open the can, drain out the juice and pop them into any salad.


Please see below for some of our fruity grilled classics which are easy to prepare and accommodate everyone at the grilling party.
