Roasted Peach Boats + Yagoot Giveaway {Recipe}

Peaches in the summertime, apples in the fall, if I can't have you all the time, I won't have none at all. - Gillian Welch, Back In Time roasted peach boat recipe It's the height of peach season and my family is going through a peck a week. That's fifteen pounds of peaches!

We each eat several fresh peaches daily, I canned nine pints, and we cook them into pie and cobbler. Wanting a lighter dessert for a recent meal, I created these roasted peach boats.

Oven roasting peaches concentrates their flavor and reduces the flesh to a smooth, scoopable texture. Scoring the peel before cooking helps the skin break easily with the edge of a spoon. The small bowl holds a dallop of freshly whipped cream, portion of crunchy granola, or in this case, a scoop of Yagoot frozen yogurt.

Yagoot asked me to create a recipe with their new Yagoot@Home line of frozen yogurt. Filled with live active yogurt cultures, Yagoot is a tangy and low fat alternative to ice cream. Pints of seasonal flavors are available in their shops in Cincinnati and Columbus.
