Jamie Oliver's stewed fruits

Jamie Oliver's Stewed Fruits by Bent Street Kitchen

Autumn finally seems to be making its way to Sydney and what better way to say goodbye to summer than with these beautiful dusky pink nectarines and peaches. The original recipe is in Jamie Oliver's "30 Minute Meals" but I've made some minor adjustments by creating more stewed juices so the better to the drizzle the ice cream with. 


18 ripe plums or a mixture of stone fruits

1 t vanilla extract

2-4 T caster sugar

1-2 oranges

1 cinnamon stick

good quality vanilla ice cream


Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Halve and stone the fruits and place in a large roasting tray with vanilla extract. Peel zest from oranges and squeeze juice in. Add cinnamon stick, snapped in half. Place in oven and cook for 15-20 mins. The fruits should be soft and can be cut by a spoon when they're done. If they're not yet done by this stage, cover with aluminium foil so they don't burn and dry out and cook for a further 10-15 mins.

Serve with ice cream.

Serves 6-8.
