  • 8 wooden skewers, 6- to 8-inch size
  • 2 large, firm bananas, peeled and cut into 1 to 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 of a small pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 8 large strawberries
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon brandy, rum, or pineapple juice
  • Vanilla, strawberry, or chocolate ice cream (or a combination)
  • Caramel, butterscotch, and/or chocolate ice cream topping
  • Chopped pecans, toasted
1. Soak skewers in warm water for 30 minutes before grilling to avoid burning; drain. Thread banana chunks, pineapple pieces, and strawberries onto skewers, leaving 1/4" space between pieces.
2. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and brandy. Brush mixture over fruit.
3. Lightly coat the unheated grill rack with cooking spray before heating

For a charcoal grill, grill skewers on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 5-10 minutes, or until fruits are warm and bananas are lightly browned, turning skewers occasionally.

For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place skewers on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill for 5-10 minutes, or until fruits are wam and bananas are lightly browned, turning skewers occasionally.

4. Place scoops of ice cream in serving dishes. Drizzle with ice cream topping and sprinkle with nuts. Top with fruit skewers and serve immediately

Thought of another variety for those that go camping and can not take ice cream.. how about some scoops of flavored yogourt instead of the ice cream...have not tried it just thought it might work...

In the Thriftsy flyer this week is a recipe for a potato salad done with red potatoes, and different varieties of peas... going to make this for the barbacue tomorrow so will let you know how it turned out and if it is good I will post.. Glad that my friend Pat tried the Strawberry Rhubarb Crockpot Cobbler and that her family enjoyed it... Remember if you try some of the recipes that I post I like to hear about it even if you feel that it needs something added to it I like to know that as well.
