Prosciutto-Wrapped White Nectarines


Working in the food industry we come across many recipes, and even get to help create them at times.  I don’t work on our office’s California Tree Fruit Agreement account (i.e. peaches, plums and nectarines), but I did catch wind of their recent press mailing that had this year’s summer recipes.  The recipe for prosciutto-wrapped white nectarines caught my eye because it’s not only super easy to make, but it also involves gorgonzola cheese…. isn’t gorgonzola always the clincher?  Our anniversary potluck provided the perfect excuse to make this crowd-pleasing appetizer.

Prosciutto-Wrapped White Nectarines

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 4 to 6 minutes

2 large fresh California Summerwhite® nectarines
20 thin strips prosciutto (about 4 oz.)
1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

Preheat broiler and line a baking sheet with foil. Cut each nectarine into 10 slices and wrap each with a prosciutto strip. Place on prepared baking sheet and broil for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until prosciutto is crispy. While warm, sprinkle with cheese. Serve with toothpicks.
