Serves 16 | Prep Time 30 | Cook Time 3


2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
2 tangerines, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 large bananas, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick slices
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1-inch cubes
Sixteen 1-inch cubes fresh pineapple (about ¼ pineapple)
16 fresh strawberries, hulled
16 6-inch wooden skewers

Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes; drain.

Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

To make the basting sauce: Stir together all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

Thread the fruit onto the skewers in the order listed. Lightly brush the sauce on all sides of the fruit.

Broil the skewers 4 to 5 inches from the heating element for about 3 minutes, or until the fruit is just heated through but not cooked. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serve this as an appetizer for guests or as a simple and healthful snack for your family.Vary the fruit, if you like, but definitely use avocado, a fruit usually thought of as a vegetable. Its creamy texture and mild, nutty flavor are a luscious surprise. If time permits, cut the pineapple into triangles, the avocado into cubes, and the banana into rounded chunks, leaving the tangerine sections and strawberries whole.
