    Honey & whisky soused nectarines

    Our Perfectly Ripe nectarines are sweet and juicy, delicious eaten just as they are or cooked very lightly. Try serving with a slice of Parma ham for a lovely summer starter.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes + chilling
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes


    100g Waitrose Scottish heather honey
    1 Vanilla pod, halved lengthways
    75ml Waitrose Scotch Whisky
    1 pack Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Regal’in Yellow Fleshed Nectarines, halved and stoned 
    4 Waitrose All Butter Stem Ginger Shortbreads


    1. Place the honey, vanilla pod and 200ml water in a pan and gently bring to the boil. Stir in the whisky and remove from the heat.

    2. Place the halved nectarines in a heatproof bowl and pour over the hot liquid. Leave to cool then chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.

    3. Spoon the nectarines and the sousing liquid into 4 small dessert bowls and serve with the shortbreads.

    Cook’s tip

    For an attractive finish, try searing the cut-side of the nectarines in
    a hot griddle pan for a minute or so until bar-marked before pouring over the hot liquid.

    And to drink…

    This Asti is a great choice to complement the nectarines.
    It’s light, sweet and deliciously refreshing – plus it’s fizzy!
