Roasted Peaches with Brown Sugar and Rosemary – Tender peaches sprinkled with brown sugar and roasted on rosemary sprigs to create a sweet and floral syrup. The perfect dessert for the late summer and early fall evenings. Add a dollop of thick cream and enjoy the sweet yielding fragrant fruit.
It is time for my project foodie group ingredient challenge. This month it is Peaches. I really do need to get a couple more southern hemisphere bloggers into the group!!!! Peaches are in season up there, but for me I had to buy imported peaches, which I have to say for out of season fruit, were perfectly ripe and super sweet.
But the beauty of this recipe is it will work with under ripe fruit, the brown sugar adds the extra sweetness and the heat of the oven makes the flesh yielding and tender.
If you can’t get peaches, nectarines or plums will work just as well.
Even before they are cooked these Roasted Peaches with Brown Sugar and Rosemary look beautiful.
These Roasted Peaches with Brown Sugar and Rosemary are a bit of a rarity here on Sprinkles and Sprouts! A dessert! Being a cheese and crackers kind of girl desserts and puddings are few and far between. But these Roasted Peach with Rosemary and Brown Sugar are worth sharing. Like most desserts I make there is a savoury element with the rosemary and sea salt. But for those with a super sweet tooth, you can easily omit the sea salt from the recipe.
