Ummm… So I woke up this morning and man, it felt like fall is around the corner. There was a gentle nip in the air and the sky was still warming up.. Nothing makes me happier than thinking about fall ..well nothing more than the season of autumn itself.. but we all know its summer !! still summer !! and the basket of fresh and juicy golden peaches that I got from my local farmer’s market sitting in my kitchen is a gentle reminder of that.
but I thought to myself how do I make myself a “fall” treat in this hot weather..
Problem solved.. I create the below for us to share.
Baked Peaches with Stilton and rosemary honey drizzle
1 Peach per person, washed, wiped clean, halved and pitted
1 Tbsp of Stilton cheese (or any bleu cheese would do; I love Stilton.. It’s creamier and just strong enough to make an impact in this dish)
1 Tbsp of honey
1/2 a sprig of fresh rosemary
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper .. Oh yeah ….
Stuff the peaches with the cheese and rosemary. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup (if you like better) and baked in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes.
Broil the tops for 2 minutes till you see the charred color.
Sprinkle some sea salt and fresh ground pepper.
Enjoy with a glass of your favorite Shiraz.. Happy “Fall” !!
