These apricot, rosemary and garlic pork skewers are the perfect kind of entertainment food and since I was having a party for one tonight, I dove right in. The marinade and marinating can be completed in advance. All that's left when company arrives is putting the pork on skewers and throwing them on the barbecue. I had yams and a green salad as a side and experimented with some gooey and moist chocolate brownies for dessert which I'll save for another post.

- 1 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin
- 1 cup apricot jam
- 3 T Dijon mustard
- 2 T soy sauce
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 5 cloves garlic, minced
- Fresh rosemary
If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least an hour before using them.
Combine the jam, mustard, soy sauce, garlic and oil and mix well. Add the needles of four sprigs of rosemary in with the marinade. Cut the pork tenderloin into one inch pieces. Add them to the marinade, coating them well and refrigerate for an hour or overnight.
Preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat. Barbecue the pork skewers for about 15 minutes, rotating them every 3 minutes. Remove them from the heat and serve immediately.
