Sweet, simple, seasonal and just plum peachy

I have to share this easy-as-pie and truly delec­table recipe for baked peaches and plums. I came up with it recently after buy­ing yet another bas­ket of excep­tion­ally juicy and tasty peaches (it’s been a good year) at the super­mar­ket for a mere $2.99. The medium-sized pur­ple plums (don’t use the too-tart-for-this smaller prune plums) were also in sea­son and on sale so this combo is a nat­ural.

Room with a Stew

I have been mak­ing this for years — a per­fect fall and win­ter dish — and recently refined it to come up with this version.

I do not dredge meat in flour any more before adding it to a braised dish after read­ing in Cook’s mag­a­zine (Cook’s mag and their cook­books are bibles to me) that this inhibits brown­ing and carameliza­tion, both of which are key when deglaz­ing the pan for a sump­tu­ous sauce.
