Swiss Ham Kabobs Recipe

"Really good and simple recipe. I'd never made ham kabobs before and these were a real hit with my husband and me. We used left-over ham we'd frozen from Easter and I did use the green pepper. We did have a little bit of a mess with the cheese melting on the grill, so we quickly took them up and heated them up a bit more in the microwave. I may par-boil the green pepper next time as it was still quite crispy with the short time ithe kabobs cooked on the gril and in the microwave. I doubled the recipe for both the kabobs and the sauce, but still used only 1/2 cup marmalade and it was still really good. A great way to use up leftover ham in a new dish!"
