Spiced Pork Skewers With Apricots

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 1 pork kebab and 1 apricot kebab)
If you have wooden skewers, soak them in water for 15 minutes so they won't burn on the grill. You can make the marinade up to a day in advance and store it in the refrigerator.

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup thawed orange juice concentrate, undiluted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
