Easy Roasted Fruit Recipe

Stone fruit loves being roasted. The sugars caramelize with all the moisture and creates a delicious, gooey sauce that simply cannot be replicated.


To boot, it is such a simple recipe and, when frozen, will keep for up to 3 weeks!


Serve with a scoop of ice cream or blend into a milkshake, eat it by itself or with some granola on top. You can even put it in your breakfast smoothie or enjoy it with your favorite pancakes. You can also add it to some vinegar, oil and herbs to make a sweet and savory salad dressing.


This recipe is perfect for summer - it's simple and versatile so we can spend more time enjoying the beautiful weather.
