I loved that the Marinade kept the fruit from browning :-) The apples/pears were not as big a hit & the canned mandarin oranges were very ... delicate to work with :D So the 2nd time I did this, I used clementine oranges that I peeled and strawberries with banana slices. Lastly, I stuck the skewers point side into a whole pineapple for display :-) Lovely .... Thanks for posting your recipe!
I used fresh pineapple and no oranges. I cut up the fruit and marinated it overnight in a bowl then put it on skewers. Big hit at our Penn State tailgate party! Thanks!
This was a great recipe. I did not have luck with the mandarian oranges and forgot to buy orange so I used apricot juice.
I made this for a family Christmas party and it was a big hit, and so pretty, thank for a great recipe. I served with Fruit Ball Fruit ball, it was very good, but this fruit is fine without a dip!
I was a little leery of allowing the fruit to marinate all night. I was fearful that I would need an early morning run to the grocery to replace browned apple and pears. However, this recipe was a success for me. :) I prepared the marinade and dropped my chunks of apple and pear into it as I sliced and let them get a good coating before spearing them with chunks of fresh pineapple and red and green grapes. I tried to use Dole mandarin oranges, but they were too small and fragile for my kabobs. I decided it was better to just leave them off. These were an excellent fresh addition to my finger food buffet at a breakfast party.
I took these for a holiday "food day" at work, they were a big hit. I used fresh pineapple chunks from grocery salad bar and I forgot the grapes so use jar cherries instead. Thanks, they were great!
This is one of my favourite summer treats. It's really delicious, served chilled, when the sun is at its full blast;)
