Roasted Autumnal Fruits

Helena and has been helping me in the kitchen since she could stand on her own two feet. She is now eight and totally qualified in the kitchen! She's recently been asking to make her own dish herself for dinner. So, with a tiny bit of help from Florence who she allowed to pluck the needles from the rosemary sprig, this recipe is totally durable for a young child to make on their own.

Ingredients (Serves 4):

  • 1 orange
  • 6 figs
  • 3 pears
  • 1 sprig of rosemary
  • A good drizzle of honey
  • the freshly squeezed juice of one orange

Cut the oranges into cubes and place them in a baking tray. Quarter the figs and slice the pears. It's optional leaving the pear skin on. I like to keep it on for the texture of it. Add the figs and pears to the tray.

Pluck the soft needles off the rosemary sprig and scatter over the fruit. Drizzle the honey over the fruit and squeeze the juice over. Bake for 45 minutes in an oven 190 degree C. Serve warm with creme fraiche for comfort.
