6


large nectarines (about 2 pounds)

1 1/2
c.

granulated sugar

1
tsp.

pure vanilla extract

1/2
c.

elderflower liqueur or white dessert wine (optional)

1/2
c.

cold heavy cream

1
tbsp.

confectioners’ sugar

  1. With a paring knife, lightly score an “X” into bottom of nectarines (this will help with peeling later). Place in a medium pot, along with granulated sugar, vanilla, liqueur, if using, and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer until nectarines are easily pierced with a knife, 10 to 14 minutes, depending on size. With a slotted spoon, transfer nectarines to a medium bowl. When cool enough to handle, peel and return to syrup.
  2. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream and confectioners’ sugar on high until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Serve nectarines with some poaching liquid and a dollop of whipped cream.
