Recipe by Courtney McDonald; Serves 6
6 firm-ripe freestone peaches, any variety
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. local honey
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. dried lavender buds
pinch of salt
1 basket strawberries, washed,
hulled and quartered
1 quart frozen yogurt (recipe follows)
or vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup “Wing Nuts” trail mix
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Wash each peach and cut in half. Remove the pit and line the peach halves, cut side up, on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Drizzle the peaches with ¼ cup honey, then with the olive oil. Sprinkle the lavender buds and pinch of salt evenly over the top and roast in the preheated oven until edges are beginning to brown and peaches are slightly soft – about 10 minutes. While peaches are roasting, toss the strawberries with the remaining 2 Tbsp. honey. Let sit for a few minutes – the juices from the strawberries will create a syrup in the bowl.
Remove the peaches from the oven to cool slightly. Carefully transfer peaches to a serving platter. Top each peach half with a scoop of yogurt sorbet or vanilla ice cream and garnish with the macerated strawberries. Sprinkle the Wing Nuts trail mix over the top. Serve immediately.
