  2. Meanwhile, heat the grill to high. Toss the fruit in the lemon juice, remaining sugar and cinnamon. Thread onto the skewers and arrange in one layer on a baking tray. Grill for 5 mins, turning once when golden. Serve with the warm butterscotch sauce.

Made this recipe last night, however we used dark muscavado sugar instead of light by accident. As a result, the sauce was not at all nice. We fully understand that this was our fault, but thought we'd warn you to use the right ingredients (to the letter) ooops!
The apples and pears were still nice though and we enjoyed them with yoghurt.
