 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8                    Nectarines, Firm And Ripe
    1 1/2  Cups          Sugar
    8      Ounces        Raspberries
      1/2  Cup           Contreau Or Grand Mariner
 
 Slit nectarine skins with a sharp knife and plunge fruit into boiling
 water for 30 seconds. Remove with a slotted spoon and peel. Halve and
 remove stones. Combine sugar with 1/2 cup water in a saucepan and stir
 over heat, without boiling, until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and
 cook until golden. Remove from heat and, protecting your hand from
 steam, stir in 1 1/2 cups extra water. Stir over low heat until smooth
 and well combined, remove from heat, add raspberries and stand for 5
 minutes. Process until smooth. Return to saucepan and bring to medium
 boil.
 
 Reduce heat, add nectarines and simmer for 3-5 minutes, or until lightly
 poached. Pack nectarines into sterilized jars. Stir Cointreau into
 raspberry syrup and pour over fruit. Seal while hot and refrigerate for
 up to 2 weeks before using. Serve at room temperature with chilled
 mascarpone and crisp wafer biscuits, if desired.
