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 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.
