Sweet and Sour Pork Kabobs Recipe

Making these zesty pork kabobs is as much fun as eating them. And as a 4-H leader with a quartet of 4-H'ers of my own at home, I can count on plenty of help preparing them. My husband enjoys grilling our kabobs outdoors. On rainy days, he broils them up juicy and tender in the oven. Either way, I always make sure to make enough for seconds.
