Roasted Peach and Plum Frozen Yogurt

Now, the last thing you probably want to do with your delicious summer stone fruit like peaches and plums is roast them.  But trust me — this recipe is SO good, and roasting the fruit really brings out the flavor of the fruit.  It takes a day or two to make frozen yogurt (because you have to drain the yogurt), but it’s worth the wait.

Roasted Peach and Plum Frozen Yogurt

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 day, 40 minutes

Yield: 2 quarts -ish

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Peaches, pitted & roughly sliced
  • 1 lb Plums, pitted & roughly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Sugar (increase or decrease according to the tartness of the fruit)
  • Juice of 2 small limes
  • 1 TBSP Vodka (optional, helps keep the frozen yogurt soft)
  • 1 cup Plain yogurt

Preparation

  1. Place yogurt in a fine mesh colander/cheesecloth over a bowl. Place in the refrigerator and let drain overnight. Discard liquidy whey (or use whey in place of buttermilk in recipes). Set yogurt aside.
  2. Sprinkle fruit with brown sugar and roast on a rimmed cookie sheet at 180 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until the fruit are soft and releasing their juices.
  3. Cool fruit, then puree in the blender. The recipe says you should get approximately 3 cups of puree. I believe I had more -- I just used 3 cups and kept the rest in the fridge for a second batch.
  4. Make a simple syrup of the water and sugar by placing in a saucepan and heating until sugar is dissolved in the water.
  5. In a bowl, combine yogurt, simple syrup, fruit puree, lime juice and vodka, whisking until well blended.
  6. Freeze as per the instructions on your ice cream maker. WARNING: You may have more frozen yogurt base than your maker can handle -- just refrigerate and save as another batch.
