Serves: 4 as a starter

Soak the nectarines in a baking soda solution for 15 minutes, then rinse and dry them. Cut the nectarines into thin slices.
In a small saucepan combine the oil and garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes, or until the garlic turns golden. Add the rosemary and cook, stirring, for another minute.
