    If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes.

    • 4  (10-inch) skewers

  • 2

    In a small pot, combine the brown sugar with 1/4 cup water, cinnamon, and orange zest. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

    • 1/4 Cup water

    • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

    • 1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

    •  Zest of 1/2 orange

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 275°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    275 ˚F / 135 ˚C

    Thread 2 pieces of each type of fruit onto each skewer.
