Fresh Roasted Fruit

May 18, 2006

My friend Ruth served this one evening and it was delightful! A perfectly nourishing dessert that helps you meet your daily fruit intake.

Choose any number of fruits you enjoy, such as:

Peaches
Nectarines
Blackberries
Raspberries
Blueberries
Apples
Bananas
Figs
Plums

Drizzle with fresh orange juice, add a sprinkling of organic sugar if you like, and bake at 325 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Test the fruit along the way. Any juice in the pan will thicken some with cooling.

You can serve the fruit with half and half, Devonshire cream, whipped cream, ice cream, or a homemade yogurt cheese. Ruth said to do this you place plain yogurt in a cheesecloth, inside a colander, and let the liquid drain out. What you have left is a deliciously smooth creamy substance.

Hope you enjoy!
