  • Mix brown sugar and spices in small bowl. Stir in rum and vanilla until sugar is dissolved. Alternately thread fruit on double skewers. Brush with spice mixture. Let stand 5 minutes.

  • Grill over medium heat 10 minutes or until lightly browned, turning occasionally and brushing with spice mixture.

Cooking tip

• Use 1/4 cup pineapple juice and 1 teaspoon McCormick® Rum Flavor in place of the rum.
• If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with fruit.
• To prevent pieces of fruit from spinning around when turning kabobs, thread fruit onto two parallel skewers for each kabob.
