Brown Sugar and Pistachio Roasted Peaches with Rosewater Labne

January 6, 2014


Wow. So long time between posts. New years resolution: blog more. Not entirely sure what I have been doing. Probably making labne. Labne is a lacto- fermented cheese that is SO easy to make at home. You can buy it, but it is as simple as putting some greek yoghurt in a cheesecloth lined strainer, tying it with string, hanging it over a bowl at room temperature for 12 hours and voila. You can read more about it and get the full run down here.


I’ve made it a few times before but never really did anything exciting with it. Put it on some toast. Ate it with some berries. So, I decided I’d make a simple dessert with peaches!





Brown Sugar and Pistachio Roasted Peaches with Rosewater Labne

(Serves 4)

What you need:

  • 4 firm peaches (white or yellow)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of whole pistachios
  • 1 cup of labne
  • 1 teaspoon of rosewater (or maybe less- taste as you go)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • pomegranate and mind to decorate if you like

What you need to do:

  1. Pre heat your oven to 200 degrees
  2. Cut the peaches in half and remove the stone
  3. Dip the cut side of the peaches in brown sugar and place in a lined baking dish.
  4. Chop the pistachios and sprinkle over the peaches
  5. Roast for about 30- 40 minutes, it will depend on how firm your peaches were
  6. Allow the peaches to cool while you prepare the labne
  7. Combine the labne with the vanilla and rosewater
  8. Smear on the plate and top with the peaches (or you could present however you like!)
  9. Garnish with mint and pomegranate if you fancy!

Some tips:

  • Serve the peaches with yoghurt, muesli, pancakes etc etc
  • This method would work with other stonefruit or pears
  • Orange blossom water would work too!

    I find rosewater so evocative as an ingredient. It makes me feel exotic! It makes me want to book a flight to Lebanon. And peaches are my favourite. I think this recipe may have just inspired me to hurry up and buy an oven so I can try it out properly! I wonder what all these ingredients would taste like as a cake….
