This is as close as you can get to grilling up sex appeal. Most grilling consists of men cooking meat for the pleasure of other men. That’s not gay. Right? But this little side dish/DESSERT breaks all the machismo boundaries and labels associated with backyard barbecues. You have the fire for the cavemen, the fruity fun for the ladies, and the sweetness for the kid in all of us. Plus these nectarines are so simple to make that you could develop quantum physic formulas simultaneously. You are running out of excuses not to make these sweet satisfactions for someone your sweet on. Best get down to the produce aisle then.
Total time: approximately 15 minutes
Projected cost: $4
Drinking Buddy: Beer or a MO MOJO MOJITO
Ingredients (serves 2):
1. 2 tbsp brown sugar
2. 1 tsp cinnamon
3. 1 tbsp HONEY
4. 3 nectarines
5. 2 tbsp butter
Melt the butter on low heat. Mix in the brown sugar, cinnamon and honey until you have a sexy sweet goop (approx 3 min).
Chop the nectarines in half and remove the pits. Brush the goop into the indentations of each nectarine half.
Preheat the grill until it is hot. Set the filled nectarines on the grill, skin down. Grill until the bottoms char slightly and the fruit meat softens (approx 10 min). Remove from heat.
Serve solo, with other BBQ fare over a la mode.
[…] Here is another version of the same recipe, except using nectarines, on a blog called Cook to Bang, which is hilarious, entertaining, and chock full of great recipes. […]
I was searching for something sweet to make that didn’t require the oven on these hot days. I am so happy I found this blog. I gave these a try tonight on the grill and it was “delicious” and with vanilla icecream “fantastic”. Thank you!
