Roasted fruit platter – This dish incorporates many different kinds of fruits that complement each other’s flavors and colors once roasted.

What you’ll need:

  • 5 large peaches
  • 4 large plums
  • 3 nectarines
  • 1 bunch of raspberries
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of lime or orange juice

Prepare your large peaches and plums by quartering them lengthwise. Peel the skin off of your nectarines. Rinse and dry your raspberries. Prick the flesh of your fruits so when the juice begins to flow, it will come out and caramelize evenly. In a large separate bowl, toss your fruit with the unsalted butter and your lime or orange juice. Once all the fruit is completely covered, place in a large casserole dish that is oven-ready. Bake everything for 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Let it cool completely before serving.

Roasted fruit and potatoes – Accompanying fruit with a starchy vegetable like potatoes adds a burst of flavor to an old recipe.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 large potatoes
  • 4 prunes
  • 2 plums
  • 1/2 cup of animal lard
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • Oven-ready frying pan

Prepare your potatoes by rinsing them well. Dice into bite-sized cubes. Boil water and cook the potato cubes for about 5 minutes. After you strain them, fry in the animal lard for 2 minutes. Place in the oven for one hour at 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove from the oven and add prunes and plums. Sprinkle brown sugar over the mixture. Return to the oven for 3 to 4 minutes or until the sugar begins to caramelize. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
