It’s Autumn in Melbourne and that means stone fruits are in season.
This is the time of year that we transition from the relaxed, openness of summer to the introspective nature of Autumn. It’s a time to ground, replenish and eat warm, nourishing food like this delicious baked stone fruit recipe.

1 Vanilla Pod
2 tsp Butter
1 tsp Cardamom

Cut a vanilla pod into small pieces and scatter over fruit along with the spices
