Nectarines and Ice Cream

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yields: 8-10 servings

Description Edit

I can't stress enough the need to use ripe nectarines. Also goes good with vanilla ice cream!

Ingredients Edit

  • 6 nectarines, halved and pitted
  • 4 cups water
  • ¾ cup sugar (or an equivalent amount of Splenda or stevia)
  • ¾ cup honey
  • 6 cups low-fat or fat free vanilla frozen yogurt
  • Fresh lavender sprigs (optional)

Directions Edit

  1. In a large saucepan, add water, sugar, and honey. Bring to a boil. Stir often in order to dissolve sugar.
  2. Add nectarines and reduce heat. Simmer nectarines for 8 minutes or until tender.
  3. Remove nectarines from the pan with a slotted spoon. Do not get rid of the nectar.
  4. Using the same liquid remaining in the pan, bring the liquid to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, or until the liquid has dissolved to about 3 cups worth. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Place nectarines in a bowl and pour nectarine liquid on top. Serve with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt. Garnish with lavender sprigs if desired.
