Nectarine Bourbon Dessert Sauce

IMG_0357Slicing up a few pieces of summer fruit, dashing in some rich bourbon and a bit of sugar makes an amazing summer fruit sauce. Delicious with any dessert you want a bit of sauce with, a simple vanilla ice cream, or perhaps a delicate panna cotta, or a decadent slice of cheesecake.

Serves 4 


3 ripe nectarines

¼ c water

¼ c sugar

2 T Bourbon


Slice each nectarine into 4 wedges.




Peel, and cut each piece into 3, making 12 chunks per piece of fruit. You’ll have 36 chunks total.IMG_0361

Put the pieces into a small pot, and stir in ¼ c water.

Cook over medium heat for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.IMG_0363

Stir in the sugar, and raise the heat back up to medium to bring to a boil.IMG_0364

Cook stirring occasionally for 4 minutes.

Remove from heat.IMG_0365

Stir in the Bourbon, and let cool.

Makes just over a cup of sauce.
