Roasted Harvest Fruit

Roasted Harvest Fruit

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.

  Roasted Harvest Fruit

  • 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.

perfect for harvest fruit polenta
