I scaled back for 6 nectarines and my dish was a little on the big side but otherwise made as per recipe using a shiraz but when it came to the time I didn't feel like dessert so served up the the DM and DS - 2 nectarines each and a good dollop of french vanilla yoghurt and the juices (they tasted delectable - yes I had a taste) and they thoroughly enjoyed, thank you Tisme, made for Make My Recipe tag game.
We love nectarines so this was a real winner Tis! I just kept poking them in until the casserole dish was full (10 nectarines!) then continued. I used a VERY light "butter" and it worked fine. After the nectarines were cooked, I tasted the sauce-it was good, but I knew it could be better, so I remove the fruit and reduced it by half-PERFECT!!!!!
