This sweet Roasted Nectarine recipe is perfect for warm weather – top with spiced honey and mascarpone cheese

2 ripe nectarines (or peaches, figs, or bananas
2 tsp muscovado sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For the Spiced Honey
2 Tbsp honey
2-3 Tbsp orange or clementine juice
1/2 cinnamon quill
1 star anise
2 cloves
Mascarpone, for serving
Fresh mint, for serving
Fresh blueberries, for serving (optional)

How to
Pre-heat your oven to the grill setting. Halve and de-stone the nectarines and lay them cut-side-up on a baking tray.

Mix together the sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a small bowl and then sprinkle over the nectarines. Grill for 5 minutes, or until golden and the sugar starts to caramelize.

Meanwhile, add the spiced honey ingredients to a small pot, bring to a gentle simmer, remove the spices and set aside until serving.

Remove the nectarines, divide between two plates, top with the mascarpone, a few fresh mint leaves and a drizzle of the spiced honey.
