This recipe serves:


Units of Measurement:
4 (10-inch) skewers
1/4 Cup water
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
Zest of 1/2 orange
1 green apple, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 nectarines, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 persimmon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (8-ounce) container vanilla yogurt
Juice of 1/2 orange


  • 1

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

  • 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.

  • 3

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

  • 4

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

  • 5

    Place the fruit skewers directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and cook the skewers until the fruit is warm and lightly charred, giving the skewers a quarter turn every 1 1/2 minutes, and brushing with the brown sugar syrup after each turn, 6 minutes.

    Make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, orange juice, and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar syrup.
