Balsamic-Maple Grilled Nectarines

I love desserts, but they don't always have to be puffed pastries and chocolate (although that is nice ;)  Sometimes you need something sweet and fruity!  The nectarines looked so good in the grocery store so I decided to adopt them, grill them, and top them with  some maple balsamic reduction (a.k.a sticky, goodness).  So yummy!
 
The nutrient content of real maple syrup is higher than that of imitation syrup, which is composed mainly of sugars with no vitamins or minerals.  Real maple syrup has manganese and zinc, minerals that can boost immune health. It also contains small amounts of other beneficial minerals and vitamins, including calcium, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, potassium and magnesium.

Balsamic-Maple Grilled Nectarines

  • 4 nectarines or peaches
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. 100% pure maple syrup (no corn syrup flavored substitute!)
And that's all :)
 
Begin by cutting your nectarines in half and removing the stone inside.  They need to be a firm ripe, but not ripe enough that they're squishy or you'll just end up with a mushy, albeit tasty, mess.  Place nectarines cut side down onto your grill or griddle. Grill for only a couple minutes
 
Meanwhile pour the vinegar and REAL maple syrup into a small sauce pan.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes.  Turn off heat and allow the reduced maple vinegar to thicken as it cools.  The nectarines are probably done at this point. Place nectarines on a plate, drizzle with maple vinegar and enjoy your sticky guilt-free dessert!
 
Enjoy!
