Tips for making grilled fruit skewers

  • If you use wooden or bamboo skewers, check for chips on skewers If you see any, you can remove it by rolling two of them in your hands or rubbing them on each other, as if you were sharpening a knife.
  • To avoid burning wooden or bamboo skewers, be sure to soak them in water for at least 20 minutes. This keeps them moist and generally reduces the chance of burning on the grill.
  • Large pieces of fruit works best for grilling. But you can also string smaller fruits like grapes and blueberries. Just be sure to secure them well so they don't fall through the grills.
  • Before grilling, make sure that kitchen racks are clean. You don't want your fruit to taste like hot dogs. Unless you like that kind of thing, and in that case, go!
