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.
