I halved this recipe for the two of us, using two nectarines. Next time I will make the full amount of sauce because it is just so, so delicious. The only real change I made was to substitute crushed rosemary for the thyme. I served it with couscous to which I added chopped pistachios. My husband gobbled it down.I may try this sauce with other meats, such as chicken. This meal goes into our menu rotation!
