Ever since I read that Marilyn Monroe ate stewed fruit often, I’ve been craving it and making it more regularly. I have always loved fruit and I have always loved Marilyn. She was one of the most beautiful women in the world and had this stunning glow, so she must have done something right.
Marilyn apparently ate steak , liver, and carrots often, and she would also have either milk with eggs for breakfast or stewed fruit. I love following an animal-based diet that consists of mostly animal foods and plants that are low on the toxicity scale like carrots and fruit.
You can imagine my excitement when I saw that Marilyn Monroe mostly stuck to these foods. If you would like to eat more like Marilyn too or simply just love stewed fruit, try this recipe!
Healthy Stewed Fruit Recipe
2 cups of fruit, such as cherries, nectarines, oranges, plums, apricots, strawberries, pears, etc.
1/2 cup water
Honey, xylitol, or erythritol, to taste
Peel (if desired) and chop up all the fruit. Place them in a small saucepan, along with the sweetener, and add sufficient water until the fruit is covered a quarter of the way or halfway. Cook it on a medium heat with the lid on until the fruit has softened. Remove the lid to let the liquid reduce until the fruit has reached a soft but thick consistency.
Serve with custard, ice cream, or yoghurt.
I hope you like this recipe. Sometimes, the simplest recipes are the best. It is also hard to screw up stewed fruit, so it is a very easy recipe to follow. You can eat it with breakfast like Marilyn Monroe or have it after dinner for a sweet treat.
Stewed fruit with yoghurt or healthy ice cream or custard is incredible on a cold day. My grandmother is the queen of cooking with fruit, so I hope that I inherited her magic touch.
