I did an early visit to the market and the nectarines, apricots and plums were what caught my eye, but you can just do a tray mix of what you most prefer. You can either add honey or brown sugar and the vanilla and cinnamon are optional, although I believe it combines perfectly with the fruits and the zest. You can also use lime zest instead of lemon.

You can also make something similar if using the barbecue; simply by halving the fruits and grill them, add some honey, some toasted almonds and serve warm with ice cream…voila a summer quick and tasty dessert! We had ours last night with lemon ice cream…and this morning I have topped the left overs with some greek yogurt…yummy!
