12 Savory Stone Fruit Recipes

While you can usually find stone fruits at the grocery store year-round, they don’t compare to the plump, in-season local beauties that arrive in late summer. These sweet, juicy peaches, nectarines, plums, apricots and cherries have ideal flavor and texture. They’re easy to throw onto ice cream or bake into pie, but you can do more than turn them into desserts. Here, find 12 savory recipes for stone fruit:

Apricots
Grilled Apricots with Goat Cheese: Grilling intensifies the sweetness of stone fruit while infusing them with a smoky flavor. Try it here filled with goat cheese and fresh herbs. (For more ideas, try Arugula Salad with Grilled Fruit or Crispy Duck with Plums and Apricots.)

Peaches
Savory Peach Chicken: Peaches give this quick chicken dinner a complex flavor (pictured above). (For more ideas, try Roasted Pork Loin with Peach BBQ Sauce or Peach and Fennel Salad.)

Nectarines
Bleu Cheese Nectarine Bruschetta: Again, simple ingredients come together with spectacular flavor for this starter.

Honey-Glazed Salmon with Spinach-Nectarine Salad: This recipe also features just-in-season corn, with potatoes and avocados.

Plums
Scallop Plum Ceviche: Showcasing a simple mix of fresh seafood, plums, lime juice and simple seasonings, this ceviche is as healthy as it is easy to make (pictured above). (For more ideas, try Plum Gnocchi.)

Cherries
Flank Steak with Beets and Cherries: This all-red dish is stunning against a white plate for a dinner party. (For more ideas, try Polenta with Cherry Reduction and Green Bean Saute.)

    That Savory Peach Chicken looks delicious. I am going to give this recipe a try. We have some really big juicy peaches at our grocery store right now, so this is perfect timing!
