Pork and Apple Skewers Recipe

Pork and Apple Skewers Recipe

Meet the Cook: Necessity was the "mother" of this recipe! I'd already marinated the pork before realizing we were short on kabob vegetables. In place of them, I used apples I had on hand. This has since become one of my most requested dishes. I have prepared these tangy skewers for just the two of us - my husband and I, married only last July, are both in the military - and for friends. -Cheryl Plainte, Minot, North Dakota
