Expert Tips

To broil kabobs, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once.

Use fresh pineapple chunks instead of canned chunks. You need twelve 1-inch pieces.

Ham from the deli or leftover from Sunday dinner can be used for these kabobs. At the deli, ask for 1-inch slices and cub them for kabobs.

Try plum or apple jelly in place of red currants.
