Nectarine BBQ Sauce

Happy Monday, UFG'ers!
Today's recipe is a winner - such a great way to use any kind of stone fruit that is a bit over-ripe.  This past Christmas, I got The Mailman a selection of fancy artisanal mustard from Trader Joe's.  I'm always looking for ways to incorporate them into my cooking.  For this one, I used the Black Currant mustard - but you can just use dijon if you don't have something fancy.  But trust me - invest in some fancy mustard - it will change your life.  Add it to pork, chicken - whatever!  Stone ground mustard too - amazing.
I put this bbq sauce on chicken and on a turkey burger.  Absolutely amazing.  The perfect summer into fall sauce! Recipe after the jump - enjoy!

1 ripe Nectarine
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
1/2 onion, or 1 small onion, finely diced
2 tsp maple syrup
1 tbsp artisanal mustard
1/2 cup ketchup

Dice finely the nectarine, garlic and onion.  Sweat onion, garlic and nectarine in a pot sprayed with nonstick spray for a few minutes.  Add mustard (I used Black Currant - yum!) and maple syrup.

Combine for a few minutes then add ketchup.  Simmer on medium-low heat.  Add a bit of water if it gets too thick (I added about 1/4 cup).  Simmer until fruit breaks down and sauce is at the consistency you like.
