Yeo Valley fruit skewers recipe

Cosy up by the campfire and tuck into some beautiful apple and pear fruit skewers, drizzled in butterscotch sauce

Serves 4 (8 skewers)

You will need

For the butterscotch

  • Yeo Valley unsalted butter 25g
  • Muscovado sugar 40g
  • Granulated sugar 25g
  • Golden syrup 75g
  • Yeo Valley double cream 150ml

For the skewers

  • Sweet eating apples 1
  • Ripe pears 1
  • Yeo Valley butter 10g, melted


  1. If you’re using wooden skewers, soak 8 in water while you prepare the sauce.
  2. Put the butter, both the sugars and the syrup in a heavy based saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved and everything is liquid. Cook on a low heat for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the cream. Gently stir for a few minutes until the sauce is smooth then set aside to cool.
  4. Slice the apples and pears into 1cm wedges then thread onto the skewers and brush with melted butter. Cook on a medium heat on BBQ or in a frying pan for 6-8 minutes on each side until they are golden and the fruit is softened.
  5. Serve drizzled with the butterscotch sauce.

Chef’s tip: Leftover sauce can be kept in the fridge and is great over ice cream, fruit or drizzle over apple pancakes recipe. If cooking in a frying pan you may need to snap off the ends of the skewers so they fit in the pan.
