  • 8 medium ripe nectarines, halved and pitted
  • 2 T. Brown Sugar

Ginger Syrup:

  • 3/4 c. water
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 3 oz fresh ginger root

  1. In a shallow baking dish, place nectarines cut side up. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Broil in oven approximately 7 minutes until slightly browned and tender.

Ginger Syrup:

  1. Combine water and sugar in small pot and bring to simmer.

  2. Slice the ginger root into thin pieces and add to the pot. Simmer for 35-45 minutes, uncovered. When the syrup has reduced to half it’s original volume, remove from burner and strain. Discard ginger. Add Chinese Five Spice to the hot syrup and stir.
