    Grilled nectarines with Cointreau glaze, hazelnuts and ice cream

    Hi all,

    I decided it was time to cook dessert on my grill. I'm grilling nectarines halves, covered with a nice glaze consisting of Cointreau (orange liqueur) and honey. I serve it with roasted hazelnuts, orange clove filets and ice cream. It's so good, it's silly.

    You can taste the Cointreau, and I match it up with the orange cloves. Also, the hazelnuts add finesse. The ice cream in the picture is Ben & Jerrys Caramel Sutra, but use whatever you have at home.

    Serves: 4

    6 nectarines
    2 oranges
    0.4 cups hazel nuts

    1 tbsp honey
    2 tbsp Cointreau

    Cut the nectarines in half. Whisk the glaze together in a small bowl. Grill the nectarine halves with the flat side up. Apply the glaze on all nectarine halves as soon as they are placed on the grill. Sear them for 5 minutes at 400° F. In the meantime, roast the hazelnuts in a dry frying pan. Let them cool off. Cut out filets of the orange cloves, and serve it all in a bowl. Start with the ice cream, then nectarine halves and orange clove filets, and finally the hazelnuts.

      I think it involves a looooong plane ride. Or an even longer boat ride.

      I was afraid of that!

    Looks awesome as always.


      Wow man, great job! Makes ice cream healthy, at least that what I would tell myself.

        Ha ha, spot on! Healthy is what I'm all about :-)

      I knew this thread was yours by the title before I saw your name. Always elevating the grilling.

      The dessert looks great, and I love that karamel sutra


        A very fine cook, sir! Here, in Alaska, most of our produce(especially fruit) is inferior, because of shipping versus ripeness, etc. When I see a cook, such as yours, I turn green with envy...lol

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
