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
  • 4 cups Water
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 6 cups low-fat 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 necatrines in a bowl and pour nectarine liquid on top. Serve with a scoop of Vanilla frozen yogurt. Garnish with lavender sprigs if desired.
