In the warmer months, it's easy to forget that some fruits (such as nectarines, plums and peaches) can be grilled along with your favorite meats and vegetables. Grilling fruit brings out their natural sugars, which produces caramelization and more intense flavor.
Try grilled nectarines as an appetizer, as part of a salad or main dish or as a dessert!
4 nectarines, ripe, washed and dried
1 tablespoon olive oil, or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons fruit preserves
1. Preheat grill.
2. Cut nectarines in half and remove pits. Brush cut sides of fruit with oil.
3. Place fruit cut-side-down on grill and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
4. Turn fruit over and spoon some preserves into each cavity. Grill until tender but not mushy, about 5 minutes longer.
