*To easily peel nectarines, cut a shallow "X" on the end of each piece of fruit. Place nectarine in a pot of boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove from boiling water and place in a bowl of ice water for a few second to cool down. Then remove from ice bath and peel by simply pulling the skin off. Skin should peel off easily.
*Take extra care once your nectarines are peeled. They'll be very slippery. Use a dish towel or paper towels to keep them from slipping as you cut them. See blog post for more details on this.
*My nectarines were medium in size. *Check the volume of your container. This recipe make more than a quart so you may have to use more than one container.
*I always place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream while storing to protect it from air and the dreaded freezer burn.
*The recipe did not fit into my 1 1/2 quart ice cream container. I used a small second container to store the excess.
