I thought these were a great appetizer! I made the sauce a day in advance, and it tasted even better when reheated the next day! Next time, I might use fewer apples and pears as this quantity made a LOT of kabobs. I used the leftovers to make a pear/applesauce, so they didn't go to waste. I might be making these as Thanksgiving appetizers!
