Makes 8 Servings
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 bananas, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 peaches or nectarines, pitted and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 (1-inch) slices pineapple (canned or fresh) cut into chunks
2 pears, pitted and cut into 1-inch pieces
2 apples, cored and cut into 1-inch pieces
Stir the oil, lemon juice, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves.
Thread various kinds of fruit alternately onto 8 skewers.
Brush kebabs with the oil mixture and place on the grill over medium heat.
Turn frequently until fruit begins to brown, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Remove from grill and let cool briefly. Serve warm to room temperature.
Threading the fruit onto the skewers can be a great way to get the kids involved with meal preparation
and reinforces an appreciation for fruit in their diet.
