Maple-Glazed Kabobs

I recently received this recipe from a friend who makes his own maple syrup. My family often requests these slightly sweet kabobs for our summer Sunday dinner cookout.

    Nice flavor! Next time I'd boil the carrots until crisp-tender before skewering. Our pork was starting to dry out and the carrots were still too crisp for our liking. Or maybe I'll use squash insted of the carrots.
