Browning the butter lightly before tossing with the apples and pears brings a slightly nutty flavour to the dish. Serve over vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt for a simple and delicious dessert. Royal Gala apples keep their shape when roasted; if you can't find them, choose ones that are similar, such as Northern Spy, Golden Delicious or Cortland.

Halve and core apples and pears; cut each half into 3 wedges. Place in roasting pan; toss with lemon juice.

In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat until golden and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Add brown sugar, nutmeg and 1 tbsp water; cook, stirring, until sugar is dissolved, about 1 minute. Pour over apple mixture, tossing to coat (mixture will clump).

Roast in 425ºF (220ºC) oven, turning once halfway through, until fruit is fork-tender and lightly caramelized, about 30 minutes. Serve with pan juices.
