In the soft decadence of dripping spoonfuls of desserts on a winter’s night, the need for warmth, at least for those in colder hemispheres, often translates into a craving for indulgent foods. Whipping up intricate sweet fares can feel like such a task though after removing snow-encrusted boots with half-frozen fingers. This recipe of roasted winter fruit puts your drying up apples or pears to use and is an easy 30-minute dish to serve up to warm up your bones… – Almila
- Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit as you prepare the pears or apples and the sauce.
- Slice your preferred fruit in half, leaving the peel on and coring out the seeds.
- Heat a small pot over low heat with your preferred oil, sweetener, and coconut sugar.
- Line a pyrex or ceramic pan with the fruits and pour over the syrup when it’s ready.
- Place in the oven for 30 minutes, basting the fruits every 8-10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven when they’ve well-roasted and slightly browned, let them cool.
- Sprinkle them very lightly with pink or crushed Maldon salt.
- Serve with crushed nuts, such as these sprouted almonds or a dusting of almond flour, with a dollop of coconut milk ice cream for a dairy-free treat.
