Oven-Roasted Summer Fruit

You can begin to compose your own creations as soon your local fruit begins to ripen in late spring and early summer, continuing to play with combinations until late fall here in our area. The final dish tastes like cobbler, but without the crust.

Leave figs whole, but halve or quarter and pit the stone fruits. Grapes may be whole or halved or both. Place the fruit in a baking dish, sprinkle with a bit of olive oil and sugar, toss, then roast at 475°F. until the fruit is soft and lightly golden, and some juices are beginning to run, about 15 minutes.

The warm fruits are especially good topped with vanilla ice cream that gradually melts into a kind of a creme Anglaise.
