Roasting Fruit

How do you save a batch of less than stellar fruit?  Roast it.  Sometimes the prettiest fruit can lack flavor or have a texture that tells you it’s a fruit that is well-past its prime.  Apples, plums, peaches, pears, apricots, and oranges are a few that can hide their flaws all too well.  Don’t ditch it.  Save it.  And, serve it under ice cream or greek yogurt with a drizzle of your best honey.

Roasted Fruit

Fruit in need of saving (washed and halved with seeds and/or pits removed)
super fine sugar
cinnamon, if desired
butter, if desired

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Place a single layer of the cleaned fruit in a baking.  Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.  Place small dots of butter on each piece of fruit.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Then, remove fruit from the oven and place it under the broiler until it reaches the level of color you prefer.
(Approximately 5 minutes)

Serve in a small bowl with small scoops of ice cream and cinnamon-dusted whipped cream.  Or, for a quick breakfast top fruit with a scoop of yogurt, a sprinkle of granola and drizzle with your best honey.

Next time, I’ll let it sit under the broiler for an extra minute or two for a little more color.
