Things I have been cooking lately #39: Roasted peaches and apricots

I suffer from something called birch allergy syndrome which means I can’t eat most fruit or nuts. It’s an allergy that becomes stronger with age so there are some things that I used to eat when I was younger that I can’t eat now and really miss. What I have discovered though is that if I cook the fruit then I can eat it… and who would have known that roasted fruit could be so delicious. You could serve this hot with vanilla ice-cream as a dessert but it also makes a delicious cold breakfast with a little Greek yoghurt. I have used peaches and apricots but you can also use nectarines or plums or any combination of these.

Roasted peaches and apricots

1 punnet of apricots, pitted and halved
1 punnet of peaches, pitted and halved
1 orange
Golden caster sugar

Preheat the oven to 200 C. Put the peaches and apricots in a baking dish, skin side down. Use a potato peeler to cut a few slices of peel from the orange and add this to the baking dish then squeeze over the juice of the whole orange. Sprinkle over a little sugar and cinnamon. Pop in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

Serves 4 as a dessert with ice-cream
