Nectarine Crumb Squares


Paul Lowe ; “I feel nectarines have a bad rep. Its like the stepson of the stone fruit family. Well, I guess they never had a ripe nectarine before, with its amazing sweetness and tender taste. It sure is one of my favorites”.

You can of course use any kind of jam for this and any nuts.
