chopped nectarines

Mostly based on this recipe, but what I did:

  • 2 cups of nectarines
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of water
  • I don’t know how much but quite a bit of chardonnay

nectarines poached in white wine syrup

Boil sugar and water for quite a long time (but I don’t think I ever got to the soft ball stage). Add wine and fruit and and bring to boil again.

Soak for one night and then coat with granulated (NOT confectioner’s, oops) sugar.

nectarines coated in cane sugar

Put in the oven at 250F for… a really long time.

This does not look very appetizing, but once you break off the surrounding “puddle” of sugar…

nectarine candy

Candied nectarines! A success.
