    1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the apple butter and cider vinegar. Add mangoes and peaches to mixture. Score the meat and insert minced garlic and rosemary. Marinate meat and fruit in apple butter/vinegar for two hours, can also marinate overnight.
    2. Preheat grill to medium high. Brush meat with oil, season with salt and pepper and put on grill. Over direct heat, brown meat on all sides, brushing with glaze as well. Cook 2 minutes on each side, then move to indirect heat to keep warm, turning every 5-6 minutes to keep glaze from scorching. Cooking time will vary based on type and thickness of meat, and individual taste. Brush occasionally with additional glaze. Skewer mangoes and peaches and grill to taste brushing with glaze. Simultaneously warm remainder of marinade in small pot on grill.
    3. When meat is cooked to taste, remove from grill, arrange individual servings on plates along with fruit, either on or off the skewer. Pour remainder of warm marinade on portions and serve immediately.
