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.
This is the best use I’ve found for the George Foreman Grill – a nifty appliance that, unfortunately, seems to squeeze out the juice and flavour along with the fat, when grilling meat. My advice on that matter is to leave the lid open. Done thus, steak, chicken etc, work well.
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.
