The nectarines give a burst of summer flavor complimented by the cinnamon caramel.


2 Nectarines

1 Tbsp. Butter

2 Tbsp. Packed Brown Sugar

½ Tsp. Cinnamon


First mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon then set aside. This will stop the cinnamon from clumping.

Next cut the nectarines in half then remove the stone. This is easier with freestone varieties which means the flesh doesn’t cling to the stone. If your variety is a clingstone then cut around the stone until the half is released.

Melt the butter in a medium fry pan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon then stir until bubbling.

Place the nectarines face down in the frypan for 30 seconds then turn over. Continue moving the nectarine halves around the frypan coating them with the cinnamon caramel.

Place 2 halves in each serving bowl then dollop with cream or ice-cream. Serve immediately.


Don’t be tempted to walk away from the nectarines while they are in the frypan. The caramel will burn if left too long.

Saving Money

Buy nectarines when they are in season which is usually in the late summer to fall or autumn. Sometimes bargains can be found during this time at farmers markets.

Consider purchasing pantry basic items which you use often such as brown sugar and cinnamon in bulk packs. They have a long storage life of up to 2 years. Store bags of brown sugar in an airtight container once opened to maintain freshness and prevent pests. This will also stop moisture from getting into the brown sugar which can cause the sugar to go hard.
