Ingredients
  • 6 slightly unripe nectarines, quartered
  • 1/2 cup amaretto
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 (8-ounce) container mascarpone, softened (recommended: Cantare)
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
Directions

Place quartered nectarines in a large resealable bag.

In a small bowl, stir together amaretto, orange juice concentrate, and cloves. Pour over the nectarines and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours.

Meanwhile, stir together mascarpone, 2 tablespoons of marinade from the nectarines, and 1/4 cup of the slivered almonds. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Set up grill for direct grilling over medium heat and oil the grates.

Remove nectarines from marinade and place on hot grill. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until grill marks appear and nectarines have begun to soften.

Serve warm with the almond mascarpone and garnish with the remaining toasted almonds.

Cook's Note: Make this kid-friendly by marinating 3 quartered nectarines in 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate, 1/2 cup ginger ale, and 3 cloves. Continue the recipe as written.
