Expert Tips

This recipe also tastes great with grilled pork or shrimp.

To toast pecan halves, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F. for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Or spread pecan halves in thin layer in microwave-safe pie pan. Microwave on High for 4 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. If nectarines are hard when you purchase them, place them in a paper bag. Leave at room temperature until they have a fragrant aroma and are slightly soft when lightly pressed.
