Recipe: Roasted honey-glazed fruits
  • Servings

  • Courses


This is the perfect way to use up ripe fruits that have been sitting at home, or in-season varieties that need extra sweetness and flavour.

  • 2 baby pears
  • 2 peaches
  • 2 nectarines
  • 4 plums (Pineapple, figs, bananas and apples also work).
  • ½ cup liquid honey
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • 1 cup apple juice or sweet wine
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4-6 cloves
  • 2-3 star anise

1 Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a roasting tray with baking paper. Cut the fruits in half or larger pieces into quarters and remove any stones or cores. 

2 In a large bowl, toss the fruits together with the honey, ginger and juice or wine, then arrange in a single layer in the prepared tray. Nestle in the cinnamon, cloves and star anise around the halves.

3 Roast for 15-20 minutes until the fruits are tender and golden and just starting to caramelise. Serve warm with ice cream, natural yoghurt or custard.
