Level 4 Caramelized Nectarine & Thyme Puree by Amanda Orchard

Summer stone fruit is just so glorious, this beautiful nectarine puree is sweet, buttery and tangy with subtle herbal notes. Can be served with yoghurts, custards, porridge, modified cereals, ice-cream, or on its own…. it even pairs well with chicken or pork! The nectarines in this recipe are interchangeable with other stone fruits, why not try it with peaches or apricots?
