When peaches or nectarines are plentiful this is a great way to make good use of them and give them a different flavour, rather like when you roast vegetables. It also works well with unripe fruit.


  • 6 peaches or nectarines, halved and the stones removed
  • 80 g butter, melted
  • 100-150


Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.

Lay the peaches cut-side up on a baking tray. Spoon over two-thirds of the butter and the Amaretto.

Bake in the oven for
