With Labor Day past us, summer may be officially over but don’t let the temperatures outside know this. With plenty of fruits still readily available for choosing thanks to modern farming techniques this simple yet delicious dessert can be equally at home served as the end to a humble home supper as it would be for a grand end to any fine meal.

Amount Measure Ingredients
1 Fresh Pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
2 Mangoes, peeled and cut into chunks (works best if the mango is slighty green)
2 lbs Bananas slighty green, peeled and cut into pieces
2 lbs Peaches or nectarines pits removed & quartered
1 lb Medium tart variety apples cored & quartered
1 cup Orange juice concentrate
2-3 tbsp Lemon juice in 4 quarts cold water
1/4 cup Honey
12 Bamboo skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes

To prepare:

Prepare the fruit and place into the cold water with lemon juice. Next skewer the fruit chunks in an alternating pattern (for example pineapple, peach, apple, banana, mango) repeating til there is no room on the skewer. Whisk together the orange juice concentrate and honey until well mixed then brush over the fruit skewers. Place onto a grill over low coals and grill for 10-15 minutes, brushing with more orange juice and honey as needed. Serve warm with whipped cream or a mixture of sour cream or plain yogurt and whipped cream.
