Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

What You Need:

  • 8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 4 hours
  • 4 ripe bananas, unpeeled, ends cut off, cut into 2-inch chunks, with 1 lengthwise slice in each peel
  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 2-inch chunks
  • ½ cup turbinado (raw) sugar
  • ½ lemon zested and juiced

How to Make It:

  1. Put the fruit on the skewers, alternating between the banana and pineapple chunks, and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan, put the sugar and place over medium-high heat; cook stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar turns into liquid, about 3 to 4 minutes. Continue stirring and add the lemon zest and juice. Set aside.
  3. Set your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Brush the skewered banana and pineapple with the glaze and put skewers on grill.
  5. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, roll and cook 2 to 3 minutes, repeating until fruit is lightly browned on all sides.
  6. Remove from grill and when cooled enough to handle, remove banana peels, then brush again with remaining glaze and serve.
