Baked Peaches

Baked Peaches

  • 4 large ripe peaches
  • 5 tablespoons apricot jam
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • Ice cream (optional…but recommended)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut in half 4 large, ripe peaches
  3. Remove the pits and place the peach halves cut side up in a 9- by 13-inch shallow baking dish.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the apricot jam, honey, water, lemon zest, and lemon juice.
  5. Spoon the mixture over the peach halves and sprinkle each half with ½ teaspoon sugar.
  6. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until the peaches are tender. Very ripe peaches will cook faster. Check several times during baking, basting them with their juices each time you do.
  7. Serve warm, with ice cream, or just drizzle the juices over the top for a delicious sauce.
