High in fibre and an excellent source of vitamin A and C, South African peaches are a powerhouse of nutrients – and this tarte tatin is packed with them

Serves 4

• I6 sheets of filo pastry
• 2 tbsp. of unsalted butter, melted
• 120g of caster sugar
• 85g of unsalted butter
• 2 ripe South African peaches, cut into segments
• 2 sprigs of thyme

1 Preheat the oven to 190C.
2 In a 20cm ovenproof frying pan, heat the butter and sugar over a medium heat without 
stirring until it becomes like caramel.
3 Lay the sprigs of thyme down in the caramel and top with the peach slices. Cook for a couple 
of minutes until softened the remove from the heat.
4 Lay down a sheet of filo onto the work surface, brush with melted butter and lay another on 
top, repeat this process with all 6 sheets and then lay on top of the pan, carefully tucking the pastry into the pan to create a snug lid.
5 Brush with a little butter and pop into the oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
6 To serve, carefully place a plate on top of the pan and in one swift movement turn it upside down.
7 Serve the tarte tatin whole for everyone to dig in with some good quality vanilla ice cream
