Y’all remember my wonderful neighbor with a luscious blood orange tree? Well, they also have plums and nectarines to offer! We were showered with baskets of sweet, juicy fruits…lucky us😊  The plums were so sweet this year , almost half were gobbled plain!

I have always been a huge fan of roasting vegetables and fruits. It not only brings out the natural sugars but also concentrates the flavor.

This recipe could not be any simpler- toss all ingredients in a pan and bake. Voila!

Any combination of fruits would work . The only thing that you might want to take into consideration is that you will want all pieces to be of similar size, so they will all cook at the same time. Also, firm fruits are a key otherwise, they’ll get squishy while baking. We don’t want that!

Serve the roasted fruits over plain yogurt for a simple breakfast or vanilla ice cream!
