I love to grill. It is as simple as that. I love whole meals that can be made outdoors. I have discovered that stone fruit works great on the grill. This is the type of fruit with a hard pit in the center. Peaches, nectarines, etc. The other day I came across this article where they grilled nectarines with a balsamic and honey glaze. This sounded amazing. I must say that if you have never combined honey and balsamic vinegar, you have never lived. It is delicious. A must try.
Balsamic and Honey Glazed Nectarines – (adapted from Epicurious)
- 3 ripe nectarines
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- pinch salt
- 2-3 scoops vanilla ice cream
In a small bowl whisk together the honey, vinegar, vanilla and salt.
Cut the nectarines in half and remove the pit.
Preheat a grill to medium/high heat.
Brush the nectarines in the glaze.
Place the glazed nectarines flesh side down on the grill for 3-4 minutes. Brush the backs of the nectarines and then flip.
Brush the flesh side again with the glaze. Continue to grill for another 3-4 minutes or until the nectarines are heated all the way through.
Plate 2-3 nectarine halves flesh side up on a plate. Top with a scoop of ice cream. Drizzle with a little of the glaze and serve.
These were amazing! The nectarines were perfectly cooked and the glaze was to die for. I was not joking when I said honey and balsamic vinegar go together.
