I never fail to be amazed by how versatile Balsamic Vinegar is – Long gone are the days of only using it on a tomato & basil salad (Although it is still pretty delicious nonetheless!)
I am very pleased to be working with Due Vittorie Balsamic Vinegar as they launch their range of vinegars at Ocado. There are 2 types, Oro for every day use (£9.99) and for extra special occasions when you are really trying to impress, the Tradizionale (£49.99 for 100ml). I have been putting both types of balsamic to the test and can confirm that both the Oro & Tradizionale are pretty special.
Honey Balsamic Peaches & Pineapple
|Prep time||5 minutes|
|Cook time||20 minutes|
|Total time||25 minutes|
|Meal type||Dessert, Snack|
|Misc||Serve Cold, Serve Hot|
- 1 Peach per person
- 2 Pineapple Rings per person (I used fresh pineapple as this is a stronger taste)
- 3 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Runny Honey
- 50g Almond Slices
- Sprinkling of Demerara Sugar
|Slice each peach into 2 halves and remove the stone. Place in a small oven proof dish|
|Place the pineapple in the gaps left by the peaches. I chopped mine into 4-5 cm pieces first.|
|In a cup, mix together the honey and the balsamic then pour over the fruit. Make sure all the fruit is covered.|
|Place under a pre heated grill for 10 minutes|
|Remove and stir thoroughly - I turned the peaches upside down and cook for a further 5 minutes|
|Repeat step 5, this time turning the peaches right side up again|
|Remove from the oven and leave to cool at room temperature|
|Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan until just starting to turn golden|
|Serve the fruit with whipped double cream and sprinkle over the nuts and some Demerara sugar if required|
