Stacked Fruit Sticks
These make a great after school snack or a birthday party treat to pass around. You can also try adding a variety of different fruits to the sticks, such as kiwis, pears or apples.
- 6 bamboo skewers (8-inch)
- 1 cored fresh pineapple
- 2 seedless navel oranges
- 6 large strawberries, hulled (remove the greens with a small paring knife)
Cut the pineapple lengthwise into four pieces. Cut each wedge into six chunks, making 24 pieces.
Trim the ends off oranges, leaving the peel on the rest of the orange. Cut each orange into six wedges then cut wedges in half crosswise.
Stack four pieces each pineapple and orange wedges on the sticks and mix in one large strawberry per skewer in the middle.
When you eat the sticks, bite the oranges off the peels and discard peels.
Serve skewers on a platter or place in sealable food storage bags to take on a picnic.
