To Die For Dessert



Yum. Am I full from all those wonderful dishes! Let's finish off this meal with the sweetest dessert ever. I serve this every chance I get. It's delicious. Here's the recipe (make sure your grill is fired up on medium-high heat):


  • 6 nectarines, a little firm, halved, pitted
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 ozs. creme fraiche (or use sour cream and add a little honey to sweeten)

The glaze - whisk 1/2 cup honey, vinegar, and vanilla in a bowl.
Whisk creme fraiche and 2 T. honey in another bowl.
Brush the nectarines with the glaze. Grill about 4 minutes until heated through, turning.
Drizzle with remaining glaze.
Spoon on creme fraiche mixture.

So...what should we call it?

Sounds good, though I've never thought of having nectarines with basalmic vinegar. And Creme. yumm, I can't come up with a name though.

Did you make up this recipe?

glazed nectarines - very un-original, but that's how my mind works :)

Sounds incredible ... we were going to grill on Memorial Day, and I think I just found dessert. Though I'll probably opt for vanilla (or honey? cinnamon?) ice cream in lieu of the creme fraiche. :)
