Happy Fruit Kabobs

Makes: 8 servings
Serving size: 1 kabob Yield: 8 kabobs
Prep 15 mins Grill 3 mins
Happy Fruit Kabobs
  • 8  wooden skewers
  • 1/2  cup  apple jelly
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  of a medium fresh pineapple, peeled and cored (about 9 ounces)
  • 2  cups  large fresh strawberries
  • 1  nectarine, seeded and cut into wedges
  • 1/2  of a 10-ounce loaf frozen pound cake, cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes
  • 8  small firm kiwi fruit, peeled and cut in half crosswise

1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 1 hour. In grill with cover, have an adult arrange preheated coals around drip pan for indirect grilling.

2. For sauce, combine apple jelly, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat; set aside.

3. Cut pineapple into 1-1/2-inch pieces. Thread pineapple, strawberries, nectarine wedges, and cake cubes alternately onto skewers, placing kiwi halves on each end. Leave a little space (about 1/4 inch) between each piece so heat can go all around. Transfer kabobs to a baking sheet or tray so you can carry them easily to the grill.

4. Place kabobs on grill rack over drip pan.

5. Cover grill. Grill kabobs 2 minutes. Carefully turn skewers over. Use oven mitts to protect hands.

6. Use a long-handled brush to slather some of the sauce over kabobs. Grill for 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through. Turn. Brush with sauce. Remove kabobs from grill.
