A peach by any other name…..

Who knew a nectarine was simply a variety of peach………..possibly domesticated in China over 4,000 years ago!?!  Although bearing tiny fruit, our nectarine tree continues to ride out the drought.  Searching for a way to use the small, but delicious fruit, I adapted a recipe found on the internet.  An immediate hit, the pie has been on repeat now using amazing nectarines from Trader Joe’s.
