Even though I am completely biased, nothing beats summer in Colorado. There is so much to do, and while it can be hotter than hell sometimes, at least there is no humidity here. For example, one day it was particularly uncomfortable outside and even more miserable inside my AC-free apartment. I could have swore that the humidity was at least 60% but after looking at my weather app, it turns out it was only 40% humidity. I guess I am a tad spoiled here haha. Anyways, any decent summer in Colorado HAS to include Palisade peaches. Pies, crumbles, you name it, I’m down. So my version of home-grown, Colorado deliciousness is roasted peaches. Here’s how it’s done:
1 peach per person
(seriously, that’s it!)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit
2. Halve and pit peaches, place on oven-safe dish. Drizzle local honey over peach halves and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until cooked throughout
Sarah Boggs got to enjoy this delicious dessert with me. We both agree it’s pretty fantastic!
