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.

The Glaze

Cut the nectarines in half and remove the pit.

Cut the Nectarines in half

Preheat a grill to medium/high heat.

Brush the nectarines in the glaze.

Brush with glaze

Place the glazed nectarines flesh side down on the grill for 3-4 minutes.  Brush the backs of the nectarines and then flip.

Grill Flesh Side Down

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.

Continue grilling after flipping

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.

Balsamic and Honey Glazed Nectarines

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.
