roast peaches


Allow 1-2 peaches per person. Wash them and cut them up into large chunks.

Place in a casserole dish with a spoonful or two of sugar and a knob of butter.

Put the dish onto a lower shelf of the oven while you are cooking something else. They will be cooked when they have a slightly caramelized colour and are bubbling away in their own syrup. Serve warm or cold, with some nice vanilla ice cream.

(If you like rosemary, add a sprig to the casserole dish and remove it when the peaches are cooked.)

  6. I wonder, do peaches require any outer wear while they are waiting to be cooked?

  7. I like rosemary, but would I like rosemary with peaches? It's good to have a dish willing to occupy the lower shelf in the oven.

  9. I love peaches, but sadly Malcolm doesn't ...... although this works well with yogurts, when I eat the peach ones and he eats the black cherry ones!!

  13. Excellent. I've poached peaches before, but never roasted them. Altogether a different outcome. Something very appealing about the whole caramelisation thing...

  14. You are right to add the knob of butter because without the fat, the peaches would just float lightly in their own syrup.
    This reminds me so much of that beautiful poem by William Carlos Williams....This is just to say.
    Except the silly man wrote it about plums.
    Hope you are keeping your hat well pinned on. It is a bit blustery this morning.

  19. Just the thing to make us think it's still summer. I wrotew down your fudge recipe too, as I love it, but haven't had much success making it. So, fingers crossed! Linda x

  20. This seems like the perfect end of summer treat...and the sprig of rosemary sounds like a nice touch. Your house must smell divine while it's cooking away in the oven.

    Oh my giddy aunt, was it wonderful.
