Warm Nectarines With Almonds and Vanilla Ice Cream - Sweden

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 5 mins

From Swedish chef Tina Nordstrom.: "Nectarines are wonderfully meaty and sweet. To combine them with roasted almonds and served with ice cream is a dessert worthy of a queen."

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the nectarines into wedges.
  2. Melt the butter and sugar in a saucepan. Mix in the nectarines and pour in the lemon juice. Bring it to a boil, then lower the heat to medium. You want to completely dissolve the sugar and cook the nectarines until they soften, about two minutes. Mix in the almonds.
  3. Serve warm with the ice cream.

Very yummy! I served this over Breyer's low fat vanilla bean ice cream. What a treat.

Very nice dessert! I too would reduce the lemon juice a smidge. The toasted almonds are a very tasty touch. I bought sliced almonds and toasted them in a dry frying pan over medium heat, stirring them to ensure even browning. I took them off the heat when they were a light brown. Thanks for posting!

I loved it. So, easy to make and much more healthier than the bottled syrups . I halfed the recipe. Next time I'll reduce the lemon juice, cause I would prefer it a little sweeter. Thanks for sharing a great dessert. Made it for ZWT 3.
