Grilled peaches and nectarines are a staple dessert around the apartment, particularly because we are already grilling and it takes no time or energy to throw a couple on after dinner’s done. Add some honey and maybe some amaretti and it’s a perfect summer dessert. You can even add some vanilla ice cream if you want to go all-out. I sometimes add some mint leaves to the honey, which is also a nice touch if you don’t do the amaretti.
Grilled Nectarines with Honey
2 nectarines (or peaches) halved
1 tablespoon honey
1 amaretti cookie, crumbled (optional)
Put the halved fruit on a hot, oiled grill (or grill pan) and cook for 2-3 minutes or until they start to show grill marks. You aren’t trying to cook them through, just give them grill marks and warm them up. Remove to a plate and drizzle the honey over the top. Sprinkle the amaretti on top if you are using them.
