Whipped this up in nothing flat... you should too.

Nectarines, homemade brown sugar, cinnamon, a pat of butter a small scoop of ice cream. It tastes amazing, and I thought, I need to post this! Which explains the lonely picture of half eaten fruit goodness. Here it is, 10:15 and I've just returned from my summer class which meets until 9:30 ... I often need a sweet at this hour, and today I ran to a store on my way home to get Hood River strawberries, but they were sold out until tomorrow! Alas, I got home and remembered I had nectarines ripening in a paper bag on the counter. So this happened, literally ten minutes from idea to eating the deliciousness. You should make this promptly.

I pared the nectarines skin-on into a small skillet, then cut a small pat of butter, about half a tablespoon, and tucked it under them. Turned that on, let it melt and coat the fruit. Then sprinkled on the brown sugar (it doesn't have to be homemade, but it is extra delicious ... mix a tablespoon of molasses into a cup of sugar and see for yourself), and a little cinammon. Let that get hot and melty / sticky on medium heat. Put a small scoop of ice cream in a pasta bowl, and sprinkle a little more brown sugar on top of it. Let the nectarines get hot and coated with the sugar - five minutes tops - then pour everything in the skillet over the ice cream, and, well, see above. You won't be sorry, and if you are, I really don't know what to tell you. Nothing beats summer fruit. More fruits and sugar recipes to come soon. ~T
