**found in 2002 Bon Appetit

6 servings

1/2 cup honey plus 2 tbsp. honey
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 8-ounce container of creme fraiche (you can sub in sour cream for this recipe)
6 firm but ripe nectarines, halved and pitted

1. Whisk 1/2 cup honey, vinegar and vanilla in a small bowl.  Whisk creme fraiche and remaining 2 tablespoons honey in a medium bowl to blend.  (Glaze and creme fraiche mixture can be made 1 day ahead.  Cover separately.  refrigerate creme fraiche mixture.  Re-Whisk Both before using).

2.  Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat).  Brush nectarines generously with half of the glaze.  Grill until heated through, turning occasionally, about 4 minutes.

3.  Arrange 2 nectarine halves, cut side up, on each plate.  Drizzle with remaining glaze.  Spoon some creme fraiche mixture into center of each nectarine half and serve.
