There's something so quintessentially Summer about biting into a soft, ripe nectarine, slurping up the sweet, syrupy juice before it seeps down your arm. You know how sugar is good, but caramel is better? Well, the same goes for grilling nectarines. Due to their high sugar content, nectarines caramelize beautifully on a grill. This heavenly dessert only needs two ingredients: nectarines and fluffy honey frozen yogurt.
Learn how to grill nectarines.
2 nectarines, each cut into 6 slices
1 pint Greek-style frozen yogurt
Supersoft nectarines will turn into a pulpy, sticky mess on the grill. Look for firmer fruit, which will hold its shape as it grills. To create perfect grill marks, do not flip until the nectarine slices have caramelized. They are ready to flip when the slices are easily lifted with a spatula or tongs.
- Heat grill to medium. Place nectarine slices in direct heat over the grill, allowing them to sear, about 5 minutes. Flip, and continue to grill 5 more minutes. Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.
- To serve, scoop ice cream into bowls. Divide nectarine slices, placing 3 pieces on top of ice cream scoop.
