Grilled tropical fruit kabobs
Packed brown sugar
¼ cup(s), dark-variety
1 tsp, finely chopped (or more to taste)
1 fl oz, dark-variety
½ medium, cut into large chunks
2 large, cut into large cubes
2 large, cut into large pieces
- Preheat grill to medium-high or heat a grill pan over high heat.
- Combine sugar, butter, ginger and rum in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat until well-combined, about 2 to 3 minutes; set aside.
- Thread fruit onto 8 ten-inch or 16 six-inch metal or wooden skewers (make sure to soak wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes to prevent charring); brush with sugar mixture.
- Place kabobs on grill or grill pan; cook until grill marks show on bottom side of fruit, about 1 to 2 minutes. Turn kabobs; grill until marks appear on other side, about 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve hot, room temperature or chilled. Yields 1 large or 2 small kabobs per serving.
