Roasted Fruit

As the weather starts to turn, we start to crave warmer, heartier versions of our favorite foods. We love this simple roasted fruit dish. It’s easy, healthy, and versatile. Serve it with pound cake and vanilla ice cream, as a filling for crepes, or add a dollop to your morning oatmeal!


Slice a variety of stone fruits, such as peaches, plums or nectarines and toss them into a glass or ceramic baking dish.

Sprinkle them with a little sugar.

Add some berries, such as blueberries and raspberries.

Toss in a cinnamon stick or two.

Bake in the oven at 400 for about 25-30 minutes, until the fruit is softened, the berries have given off juice, and it is starting to thicken.

Stir in a splash of orange juice.


This can be served hot or at room temperature. If you want to make it ahead and serve it hot, take it out a little sooner, and wait to add the orange juice until you are ready to serve it.
