I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with summer’s stone fruits. On one hand, who doesn’t love a good peach? Or plum. Or nectarine. Etc. They’re sweet and juicy and just make people happy.
So what’s the hate all about? I just wish they would be less…finicky. In the autumn, I can buy a bag of apples and keep them in my fridge for (what feels like) months without anything going wrong. Summer fruit, however, doesn’t keep that way. It goes from too hard to too soft in (what feels like) minutes. You can’t stock up on peaches for the week, because if they’re good on Sunday, by Thursday they’re over-ripe. So frustrating, isn’t it?
The good news is, when you roast your peaches, they’re so forgiving. A little too hard? No problem. Kinda over-soft? Don’t worry about it. They’re juicy and bursting with flavor and so addictive. Guys, I warned you! Seriously, when you roast your peaches for this recipe, you should double it, because you’ll probably eat most of them on the tray before you get to actually bake anything with them!
