PJ, Today was the day!! In truth, it was the day I decided to start blogging again. It’s my first true day of summer vacation. Woo hoo!!
I have a schedule I am going to try to stick to with each day having a different topic that I am going to try to adhere to, so we will see if that helps me blog more frequently. I miss it so much.
But for today, I just want to tell you about roasting fruit. I have been reading about it everywhere. Roasted grapes and strawberries being the ones I see the most frequently. So, today, I decided to try it. I mean, every thing is better roasted, how could they not be delicious.
It was a semi-success.
I cooked them five minutes less than the Ina Garten recipe called for, but it was still a few minutes too long. They were really good, but I think I could do better. I put them in the oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. I only added a few teaspoons of sugar to the strawberries and grapes beforehand, then put them in the oven. Next time I might add balsamic. Or honey.
Here is the before:
I added them to some Fage 0% Greek Yogurt with cinnamon and a dash of vanilla. The mix was delicious, but like I said, I think I could do better with the fruit.
Well, I am off to start laundry.
Anybody ever try roasting fruit?
Have a great Wednesday.
