Monmouth Co-op News

Looking for something festive to bring to a summer backyard BBQ?

Monmouth County Organic Fruit and Veggie Co-op always has a great variety of fruits in every shipment ... how about some quick and easy FRUIT KABOBS!

Grab some wooden skewers and let's get kabobbin'!!!

Of course we can always go with the traditional red white and blue variety for Fourth of July (watermelon, bananas and blueberries, anyone?) but we are also fans of the whole fruit rainbow!!!

Who learned their rainbow colors by memorizing ROY G BIV?

RED – watermelon, raspberries, strawberries, cherries

ORANGE- orange wedges, tangerine, canteloupe, peaches

YELLOW- pineapple, bananas, mango, gooseberries

GREEN- kiwi, honeydew, green grapes, starfruit

BLUE- blueberries, blue mango (rare and native to Indonesia)

INDIGO- blackberries, concord grapes (somewhere between blue and violet)

VIOLET- figs, plums

Helpful Hint: Layer your fruits in reverse order of how you want them to display (red on top)

These quick and easy grab n go fruit sticks will be the hit of the backyard brouhaha!

Bonus points if you stick them out of a cantaloupe, honeydew, or small round watermelon-

the melon's curves make a formation in the shape of a rainbow... creating a great centerpiece.
