Serve this interesting sauce over a scoop of Brennan’s vanilla ice cream.

Stir first 6 ingredients in medium saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat and boil syrup 1 minute. Reduce heat. Add nectarines. Simmer until nectarines are tender but still hold shape, about 10 minutes. Transfer sauce to bowl; cool. Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover; chill.
