White Nectarine Pickles


Our white nectarines may be small in size but they are mighty in taste.  

I just love them! 

I have a love/hate with fruit pickles....and after a little experimenting I ended up really liking these Nectarine Pickles. Since they have that ruby outer skin I thought Red Wine Vinegar would be a nice touch.

Quick White Nectarine Pickles

1 quart white nectarines, pit removed and cut into slices
1 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/2 cup water
2 tsp pickling salt
2 cinnamon sticks broken in half
1 tsp black peppercorns
1/2 cup white sugar

Bring vinegar, water, salt, sugar, and peppercorns to a boil. While that's heating slice nectarines. 
Once brine boils add fruit slices and let mixture return to a boil. Remove from heat and funnel into clean warmed jars. Allow to cool and then place in the fridge. 

Enjoy!
