Keeping It Simple: Roasted Peaches

I got these beautiful organic and local peaches from the Granville Island Public Market. They are so good fresh, but I was looking for something else to do with them without as much work as making peach crumble or pie. Then I saw Susan’s Roasted Peach Ice cream and read how she roasted the blushing fruits. I knew exactly what I was going to do next.

Good for two peaches, I just combined 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. I rolled the quartered peach slices into this mixture and placed them one cheek against a greased pie pan.

Notice that it’s missing one quarter because I ate it. I mean, it looks like it would be cramped in there so somebody had to eat it! Hah.

I had them roast at 400ºF for 20 minutes. When I took the pan out, I turned the peaches on their other cheek so both sides of a quarter slice will get the syrup at the bottom. And I let them cool for a bit.

Enjoy the peaches warm. It’s a little soft and very…VERY delicious. You can also top it with vanilla bean ice cream, or serve it iced on a bowl if you like it cold. Or add it to frozen yogurt.

What fruits have you roasted (or cooked) and how? I’d love to know! I still have a bunch of fresh blueberries, figs, strawberries, peaches and pears here and I don’t know what to do with them.

  2. I’m so glad you tried this! Those peaches look out of this world! You can roast fresh figs too. I like to roast them and serve them stuffed with goat cheese and drizzled with a balsamic reduction.

    Looks so good! I love roasted apples but I am sure roasted pears are delicious too! Gotta try!

  5. I love fresh peaches, too bad we don’t grow them here in the Philippines. I have yet to try roasting them though, perhaps the next time I’m in the US and they’re in season… yummy!

  6. One of my favorite radio programs is Good Food with Evan Kleiman. She did a story on grilled fruit a couple years ago that really opened my eyes to the joys of releasing those wonderful sugars.

    For the Strawberries, I would try dipping them in melted chocolate. Just make sure they are good and dry first before the dipping. A little coconut for the dipping as well right after the dipping in the warm chcolate is an awesome combination.
