Directions
PREP
15 mins
COOK
10 mins
1. Mix brown sugar and spices in small bowl. Stir in rum and vanilla until sugar is dissolved. Alternately thread fruit on double skewers. Brush with spice mixture. Let stand 5 minutes.

2. Grill over medium heat 10 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally and basting with spice mixture.

Test Kitchen Tips: 

  • Use 1/4 cup pineapple juice and 1 teaspoon McCormick┬« Imitation Rum Extract in place of the rum.

 

  • If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water at least 30 minutes.  To prevent pieces of fruit from spinning around when turning kabobs, thread fruit onto two parallel skewers for each kabob.
