A fun and enjoyable way to get your guests involved in the making of the dessert.

I star fruit (carambola), cubed
1/4 papaya, peeled and cubed
1/4 pineapple, peeled and cubed
I cup dark rum
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 dozen wooden skewers, 5 to 10 inches in length

Combine star fruit, papaya, and pineapple cubes in a flat bowl. Add rum and cover with plastic wrap, chill for 1 to 2 hours.

In separate bowls, place fruit and brown sugar. Put on a table next to the grill with bamboo skewers. Have each guest spear pieces of fruit, roll them in brown sugar, and hold over grill until surface glazes and lightly browns.

Cool slightly before eating.
