Christmas Fruit Kabobs Recipe

Christmas Fruit Kabobs Recipe

My chunky fruit skewers are always a hit for brunch, whether served with pastries, quiche or eggs and bacon. They're also excellent appetizers and potluck additions.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling Cook: 5 min. + cooling YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 fresh pineapple, trimmed and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 kiwifruit, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 3 medium apples, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 medium firm bananas, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) maraschino cherries, drained
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped

Directions

  • 1. Alternately thread fruit onto wooden skewers. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2. In a small saucepan over low heat, cook and stir the egg yolk and syrup until a thermometer reads 160° and is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice. Cool completely. Fold in the whipped cream. Serve with fruit for dipping. Refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 20 kabobs (about 1 cup sauce).
