The Easiest Nectarine Crumble

…And we’re back :)

Two years later, I’m happy to be creating and posting new recipes on Broke and Cooking. Instead of playing catch up, let’s get right to the recipe that came to my mind simply because of the gorgeous nectarines and peaches at Trader Joe’s this season.

As summer winds down, my kitchen is stock full of stone fruit. Nectarines, cherries, mangoes, apricots, peaches and plums all fall under the name “stone fruits” because of their large hard seeds. They are native to warm climates and are at their peak from June through September, so enjoy them while you can! :)  

I have a batch of beautifully ripe nectarines. I love them for their smooth outer skin, and incredibly sweet flesh. They are beautiful to cook or bake with because of their color, and I couldn’t wait to work on a recipe celebrating the nectarine.
