Nectarines are an excellent source of vitamin C to strengthen the immune system and vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning. The fruits also contain some fiber to regulate the digestive tract, potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, folate to develop red blood cells, and other amounts of zinc, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamins E and K. Nectarines have a sweet flavor well suited for fresh and cooked preparations, including grilling, poaching, baking, roasting, or sautéing. The fruits can be consumed straight, out of hand, with the skin on, or sliced and eaten with sugar or cream as a dessert. They pair well with cheeses such as goat, gorgonzola, and mozzarella, herbs including basil, mint, and cilantro, fruits such as berries, citrus, cherries, pomegranate, and apricots, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, meats such as pork, poultry, and beef, fish, and shrimp.
