Grilled Fruit Skeweres

August 27, 2006

8 bamboo skewers, 10 to 12 inches long

2 mangoes, peeled and seeded

2 small papayas, peeled and seeded

1/4 to 1/2 pineapple, peeled and cored

8 strawberries

Soak the skewers in cool water for 30 minutes.

Preheat a gas grill to medium. If using a charcoal grill, build a fire and let burn until the coals are glowing red with moderate coating of white ash. Spread coals in even bed. Clean cooking grate.

Cut fruits into relatively equal-sized pieces. Thread fruit onto skewers, alternating them. Grill skewers, turning as necessary, until slightly charred and hot, about 6 to 8 minutes, depending on ripeness of the fruit.


Serve with Buttermilk Ice Milk.
