Firecracker Fruit Skewers

Firecracker Fruit Skewers

Fruit kebabs made with watermelon, jicama and blueberries make a festive holiday appetizer. Just in time for the Fourth of July. Just cut watermelon and jicama into small circles with cookie cutters and then hold together with skewers and a few blueberries. Oh, and spread a little blueberry jam on the serving platter. Instant festiveness!

Yes, I know. Cute food is frowned upon by many in the food world. But in my defense I must say that there are some holidays that just cry out for fun food. Take the Fourth of July for example. A holiday that has parades, fireworks and watermelon seed spitting contests really should have festive food, I say.
