Poached Stone Fruit with Cinnamon

Stone Fruit

With the mornings getting colder, now is the perfect time to have something on hand that will warm you up and set you up for the day ahead.  The beauty of this recipe is that you can make a batch, store it in the fridge and then quickly warm it through in the morning, or you could even have it cold. Top it off with granola, yoghurt or have a spoonful with porridge.

As the evenings are getting darker and the temperature dropping all I can think of is comfort food.  My idea of comfort food is soups, stews, casseroles, I particularly like that most of the foods I find comforting can be made using just one pot, which is a winner in the washing up department!  I’ll be trying out a few new recipes this week and I’ll be sharing with you soon.

In the mean time, have a bash at this recipe.  Very simple to make and quick too! Just a tip, you don’t want to chop your fruit up too small as it’ll go mushy (technical term!).  I find simmering for 5 minutes is just long enough for the fruit to start to soften but still hold shape.

Ingredients

-2 peaches, stone removed and roughly chopped

-2 nectarines, stone removed and roughly chopped

-4 small plums, stone removed and quartered

-1 cup apple juice

-1 cinnamon stick

-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

How to Make

Put all ingredients into a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil.

Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and simmer gently for 5 minutes, until the fruit is just starting to soften.

Serve immediately or decant into airtight containers and allow to cool before storing in the fridge.
