these were great!! I made them when we were camping -- I used fresh pinapple and since I forgot vinegar I used some of the pinapple juice instead. I also used Dijon mustard instead of plain mustard. My kids LOVED it even my 6yr old picky eater. THey were also very easy to make -- a plus when camping. DOn"t forget to soak your skewer sticks if you are using wood ones so they don't burn on the grill. Read More

To us this was just ok. We followed the recipe to a tee except that I added a dash of soy sauce. It hardly makes any basting glaze at all so that's a problem. It's not a bad recipe but not one that I would repeat either. If you like the taste of ham & pineapple then you'll probably like this but don't expect much more... Read More

Awesome recipe. I used a turkey ham chunk cut up into pieces since we do not eat pork very often. I also marinated cut up green peppers and mushrooms in another bowl and added to skewers. I served these over the coconut rice recipe on this site with some of the saved marinade from the veggies and wow! I have made these twice now and they will become a regular part of our meal plan. Thank you for something different for dinner! Read More

I added 2 tablespoons soy sauce for a bit of kick and to help lessen the sweetness. We loved it. I may add a clove of crushed garlic next time. I would suggest brushing the sauce on in the last minute of grilling...with all the sugar it burns quickly. My children ate their kabobs raw...I used precooked ham...and loved the sauce. This is definately a repeater!! Read More

This recipe was very good and REALLY easy. I used fresh pineapple and added a cap full of soy sauce to the glaze for a little more zing. You really can get this to the table start to finish in less than 30. Read More
