    I love this recipe. Only natural sugars and natural carbs. The very best for the body. I will, however, not use the brown sugar, or any sugar for the next batch I do, as the fruit is sweet enough all on its own!!!
    Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing it.

    While this dish looks pretty, it was too much prep work for me. A great alternative to junk desserts. I would try it again with only bananas and apples and the spices for more of a banana apple pie w/ the cinnamon flavorings. - 3/3/08

    I won't make it again cause it raised the blood sugar. The info says no sugar but all fruits are filled with sugar as well as having brown sugar added to it. We need some honesty in the info. - 2/24/08

    This is the best kabob I have ever heard of and tasted. I just keep wondering why I did not think of it long ago myself. The only difference for me would be to use artificial sugar. - 10/27/08
