Dessert Fruit Kabobs

Something Sweet on a stick.


2 navel oranges, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 seedless pink grapefruit, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1 small honeydew melon, sliced 1/2 inch thick, rind removed
12 unpeeled apple wedges
2 bananas, cut in 1 inch slices
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon butter or margarine

Cut orange and grapefruit slices into quarters;  cut melon slices into equivalent size wedges.  Spear an apple wedge on each of six skewers, then alternate with wedges of grapefruit, bananas, orange and melon; repeat.  Set aside.  Mix brown sugar, water and cloves in a saucepan.  Stir over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring until clear and thickened. 

Remove from heat, stir in butter and spoon over fruit kabobs.  Place skewers with fruit on grill and cook 5 – 6 minutes, rotating and basting with syrup.  Serve hot as a dessert.  Save remaining sauce for dunking.
