If I ever had roasted harvest fruit before I did not know it. After listening to Lynne Rossetto Kasper talk about it on her show "The Splendid Table" I ws intrigued. Lynne was suggesting this a an addition to homemade ice cream.
As I have since found out, it is also great for fruit crumbles, as an apple sauce substitute, fruit pizza, anything looking for a fruit sauce. This sauce is as low maintenance as you can get.
- 5 cups chopped fruit (about 8 plums, nectartines or apricots and 3-4 apples or pears)
- 1/2 tsp Russian Mulling Spice
- 2 tbsp brown sugar or Local Honey (optional)
- 1/8 cup water or Drambuie (optional if the fruit seems dry)
Chop fruit. I leave skins on, you don't have to. Dust with Russian Mulling Spice and sugar. Pour into a heavy baking or roasting pan. Bake in a 350f preheated oven for about 20 minutes, then adjust oven settings to a low broil and broil for about 5 minutes, or until bubbly.
Serve warm, or let cool, cover and refrigerate.
