General Nectarine Information

Nectarines are delicious raw, whole for eating, or cut up in fruit salads. They can also be used in almost any recipe that calls for peaches. Nectarines can be stewed in the microwave, too: for 1/2 pound sliced nectarines, or about 1 cup, microwave in a hot syrup* for 3 minutes on high.

*For syrup, heat 1/2 cup sugar dissolved in 1/2 cup water for approximately 3 minutes.
