Nectarine Pie

Rating: Unrated
A different type of pie and very good. My husband would eat the whole pie if I allowed him.

Grilled Pork Chops with Fresh Nectarine Salsa

Rating: Unrated
A zippy, sweet and spicy nectarine salsa goes really well with pork, particularly grilled pork, in this favorite summer recipe.

Nectarine Blush

Rating: Unrated
I love making this drink in the summer with fresh nectarines. It is also really good made with fresh peaches. The buttermilk gives it a fresh and tangy flavor while the brown sugar disguises the fact you are using buttermilk!

Curried Salmon with Summer Fruit Chutney

Fabulous Fruit Salad

Rating: Unrated
An easy, quick, and holiday-worthy fruit salad that is easily doubled.

Drupey Pie

Rating: Unrated
I added fresh, ripe nectarines and apricots to this sour cherry pie. These fruits are drupe fruits meaning they are fleshy with a hard stone or seed in the middle. The pie was summery and delicious! I really like to use turbinado sugar--it's less processed and has a good flavor--but white sugar would be fine, too.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Rating: Unrated
Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won't find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes.

Nectarine Upside-Down Cake

Rating: Unrated
A buttery brown sugar glaze and the simple white cake below make this upside-down cake irresistible.

Crab & Avocado Salad with Fruit Salsa

Rating: Unrated
My crab salad with fruity-salsa flavorings is simple and appealing. Sliced avocados anchor and enrich this lively, colorful dish. If possible, select lump or backfin crab. The larger the crab chunks, the fewer shell fragments to pick out.

Flavored Water

Rating: Unrated

This is wonderfully refreshing and thirst-quenching homemade flavored water. Ideal and healthy alternative to bought soda drinks.
