Heat is one of the most defining factors for a dish. It has the ability to destroy a raw ingredient, or to make it really shine. It transforms the ingredients. Think about how it interacts with sugar, how it transforms it into caramel, and what aromas it brings to the surface. Somewhere between these thoughts and looking at my hard to bite nectarines this recipe was born. Baked seasonal fruits with coconut oil, vanilla and thyme.
My kitchen was filled with aromas, colors and textures. The hard nectarines softened, the firm cherries wrinkled and the soft apricots look alike almost a jam. All this was embraced by strained yogurt, but also crunchy notes of granola.
