a very colorful, original and healthy recipe

The ideal is to prepare the fruit skewers in summer since that is when we find the most variety of fruit and thus, they will be at their optimal point of sweetness. Also We can adapt this recipe to the fruit available at any other time of the year. We like to cut the fruit into pieces of more or less equal sizes, so that they look good on the skewers.

To take into account that, to prevent the fruit from slipping off the skewers, we must put a meatier fruit at the ends, such as an apple or pear, to act as a stopper. If you are going to prepare the skewers for small children, do not make them very long or they will not be able to hold them, it is better to take several smaller ones and always under the supervision of an adult.

To prepare these skewers, the fruit It has to be washed and ready to eat. You can leave the apples, pears and peaches with or without skin if you don’t like it. If we use strawberries, we will remove the stem, even though they look prettier with the green part. It’s about enjoying when we eat the skewers and not having to throw away leaves and seeds.

To give them an original and different touchwe can intersperse mint or basil leaves between the fruit, which will provide a fresh touch.

For prevent them from rusting, it is better to make the fruit skewers at the moment, since the fruit once cut oxidizes and will be unattractive. Some fruit, such as melon or tangerines, can be prepared in advance and left already cut.
