This is a wonderful way to use nectarines as grilling brings out the juices and makes for a delicious warm ice cream topper.
1/4 cup honey
1/4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 ripe fresh nectarines, cut into 8 wedges each
2 tbsp melted butter
4 small scoops vanilla ice cream
Fresh mint sprigs to garnish
Step 1: Prepare grill for medium-high heat.
Step 2: Stir together honey, lemon juice and cinnamon in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool until warm.
Step 3: Brush nectarine wedges lightly with butter. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side to lightly char. Remove from grill and carefully stir into warm honey and lemon mixture. Spoon over ice cream and garnish with mint sprigs.
