Oven Roasted Fruit

Whenever i get to go home to Utah it’s a treat. Utah honestly has the most beautiful summers. I am probably bias given i grew up there but it’s dry, warm in the day, cool at night, and has that really lovely soft grass that you can’t wait to just lay in- especially under the stars, it’s beautiful. Anyway!! Last week i went home to my lovely family to cook, dance, and eat (we live in the kitchen).
Every year my mom buys a MASSIVE box of peaches from a local orchard; I make it my duty to eat them all before… uh… they…uh… go bad. You see, I can find complete and utter happiness in a bowl of 5,6,7, 10 peaches. It’s why i made them dessert. Dessert typically equals happiness and so do peaches… big time smiles here.
My cute sisters. They can’t wait to each peaches for dessert too. 
 Specifically, this dessert is composed of peaches, strawberries, and plums. Drizzled with citrus and paired with Frozen Honey Sweetened Yogurt, Ice Cream, or by itself. You won’t feel guilty for this one. 

 

Oven Roasted Fruit
Peaches, Strawberries, Plums

Ingredients

  • 6 peaches, pitted and cut into quarters or eighths
  • 6 plums or Italian prune plums, pitted and quartered or halved
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups fresh Strawberries OR raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Place the peaches and plums snugly in a single layer, cut side up, in 2 glass or porcelain oven-proof baking dishes. Sprinkle with the sugar, and then top with the raspberries. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender.
Heat the broiler and place the fruit about 5 inches below the heat and broil for 5 to 8 minutes, until the berries release some of their juices.
Remove from the broiler and sprinkle with orange juice. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. You may also serve it with a bit of plain yogurt (with honey or not)
