Fruit and veggie skewers are a healthy and fun snack or appetizer that is perfect for parties or picnics. Fruits and vegetables are threaded onto skewers and served with a variety of dipping sauces.

Serving Suggestions:

Arrange the skewers on a platter and garnish with fresh mint leaves or edible flowers for an elegant presentation.

Serve the skewers chilled as a refreshing appetizer or dessert.

For a more substantial meal, pair the skewers with a side salad or grilled chicken.

Safety Guidelines:

Thorough Handwashing: Always wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling food, including when preparing fruit and veggie skewers.

Proper Fruit Handling: Wash all fruits and vegetables thoroughly under running water to remove any dirt or debris.

Consumption Considerations: If using white spirit, ensure it is food-grade and consume the skewers within a reasonable timeframe to maintain freshness and flavor.

Additional Tips:

  • For a more intense vanilla flavor, split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the syrup.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar to your liking, adding more or less depending on your preferred sweetness level.
  • Experiment with different combinations of fruits and vegetables to create your own unique flavor profiles.
