"Thanks for reminding me to use my skewers! I have long metal ones. I didn't have the turkey sausage links so used Octoberfest sausage cut in inch and a half peices and I added whole mushrooms. Yummy! Am going to do this again with New Zealand Spring Lamb sausage pieces and will add more colour with orange, yellow and green pepper chunks - especially when we have company. Thanks for the recipe! P.S. My husband always loves to drink the drained pineapple juice (his favourite) when a recipe doesn't need it..."
