Poached Nectarines with Honey Ice Cream
Ingredients
  • 2  cups  Muscato wine
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • 2  tablespoons  sugar
  • 1  vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
  • 6  small nectarines, halved and pitted
  • 1  pint  purchased honey ice cream
  • 1  tablespoon  honey
  •  Fresh mint leaves (optional)
Directions

1. In a large saucepan combine wine, water, sugar and the vanilla bean. Bring just to a simmer. Add nectarines. Return to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 7 minutes or until just tender, turning nectarines once or twice. Transfer to a serving bowl. Let cool 10 minutes. Return the cooking liquid to a simmer. Simmer until liquid has reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

2. To serve, remove and discard vanilla bean. Scoop ice cream and drizzle with honey. Top with poached nectarines and the reduced syrup. Add mint leaves, if desired.
