I’m so sorry for the week-long break between posts, but as previously mentioned, things are only going to get busier from here on out.
Truth be told, I’ve not been busy with University work too much as of late, but I have been enjoying some downtime, and making things that are not new (and therefore not for the blog). I am still stocking up on recipes that I can post at later dates as well, though, given that I know time will be precious in a few weeks. So, bear with me while I try to get some blog posts prepared for you to enjoy.
For most people, winter is cold. For us in Hong Kong at the moment, we have no idea what is going on. One week the temperature is 25°C, 90% humidity, and the pollution is so bad that we shouldn’t really be outside. The next week it’s 15°C, 60% humidity, and so clear you can see the weather measuring instruments on top of the mountains. Sometimes you can get all of that over the course of 3 days. Right now it’s a weird mixture of humid, windy, polluted, and warm-ish.
So on to today’s recipe. I was inspired after going to a barbecue, and discussing the potential to have grilled peaches, although we never did actually have them that night.
It took me a few months to finally get round to it, but these baked peaches with rosemary and honey were delicious. The white chocolate chips were an extra that I added on for fun, but they rounded the dish out really well.
The peaches I used are quite small, but I definitely want to try this again when peaches are in season, with larger peaches. This would also work amazingly with a soft cheese like a Brillat-Savarin, or brie, but I’m not sure it’s to my taste.
6 peaches, cut in half with stones removed
3 tablespoons honey
1 sprig fresh rosemary, leaves picked
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with reusable foil or baking paper.
- Place the peaches on the tray, flesh side up. Drizzle the honey over all of the peaches equally.
- Sprinkle the rosemary leaves over the peaches.
- Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, and evenly distribute the white chocolate chips between the peaches.
- Divide between two plates and enjoy warm.
