so simple, and yet so delicious. I had a hard time cutting the nectarines in half, so i just sliced them. Topped them with candied almonds and creme fraiche. such a treat.

This is one of those recipes that is so simple and yet so amazingly good, that you wonder why you haven't made it before! We LOVED these Mme Melissa! I had one minor blip - I did not have any spare vanilla pods, they are all taken up in my assorted sugars! So, I dribbled a little vanilla extract on these nectarines with the honey - they were still fabulous! We ate these with low fat creme fraiche and I baked them with a sprig of lavender from the garden. Thanks for a lovely low fat and healthy dessert recipe! FT:-)
