Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Nectarines can be prepared and served like peaches: eaten raw, cooked, dried, candied, or jellied. The skin of nectarines is edible, but may be removed by making a small “x“ in the bottom of the fruit, plunging it into boiling water for a minute and then placing it in ice water. When cool enough to handle, the skin will easily slip off. They are delicious in ice cream and sorbet, as well as in cakes and pies; they also make beautiful tarts. Add them to yogurt, fruit salads, or cereal. Sometimes nectarines are utilized in distilling liqueurs or brandies.
