Memorial Day Party with these Patriotic Pineapple Skewers

With warm, sunny days and hot summer nights quickly approaching, nothing says “summer” quite like a Memorial Day weekend bash to kick off the changing of the seasons. This means a weekend full of family, friends and fun grilling out and soaking up the sun with some home-cooked grub. Show off your patriotic side with these fresh berry skewers that are bound to stand out at any party.

The first step is to find that perfect pineapple. For tips on how to find the sweetest berry of the bunch, visit the link here. Yes, we did say berry! According to Union County College, the pineapple belongs to the bromeliad family and is one of few bromeliads to produce an edible fruit. So actually, a pineapple is made up of several berries that fuse together around a central core. Those “scales” that you see on a pineapple? Well, those are all separate berries!

Once that perfect pineapple has been found, the fruit should be diced into cubes. Then simply layer the pineapple on skewers with fresh raspberries, blueberries and strawberries to create a sweet patriotic treat!

These sweet and salty football-themed bites will be reigning champs no matter who’s team you’re on. Impress your host or your guests this Sunday and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a fresh Chestnut Hill Farms pineapple
  • 6-8 mini bell peppers (or 1-2 medium bell peppers – pick your favorite team’s colors!)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F (190C). Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Peel and core the pineapple (easy to do with a pineapple corer!). Cut into pineapple chunks that would fit on a toothpick.
  3. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and scoop out seeds inside. Go ahead and cut the peppers into pieces that are similar in size as the pineapple chunks.
  4. Cut each slice of bacon in half lengthwise, then in half crosswise in the middle of each to get 4 strips total.
  5. Wrap the bacon around each pineapple chunk (ends at the bottom) and secure with a toothpick with the bell pepper piece.
  6. Arrange your pineapple bacon bites on a baking sheet and lightly dust with smoked paprika.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy. Enjoy!
