 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      cups          fresh nectarines
      1/4  cup           granulated sugar
    1      tablespoon    fresh lime juice
    1 1/2  teaspoons     unflavored gelatin
      1/2  cup           cold water
    1      cup           water
      1/3  cup           granulated sugar
 Wash, peel and cut up into small pieces enough nectarines to
 measure 4 cups.  Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and the lime juice over the
 fruit; stir until the fruit is well coated with sugar.  Set aside for at
 least one hour. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold
 water; stir and set aside to soften.  In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup
 water with 1/3 cup sugar.  Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring. 
 Lower the heat and keep at a slow boil for 5 minutes without stirring. 
 Remove from the heat and pour in the softened gelatin; stir until the
 gelatin has melted. Set aside in the refrigerator to cool. Spoon the
 sugared fruit into a blender and blend until pureed; pour into a
 medium-sized bowl.  Remove the sugar water from the refrigerator; pour
 into the fruit and stir until well combined.  Cover and freeze for 1
 hour, or until the mixture becomes icy. Remove from the freezer; uncover
 and stir to break up any icy pieces, then beat until smooth.  Pour into
 a freezer container or serving dish.  Cover and freeze until firm. Allow
 the ice to ripen in the refrigerator for 2 to 2 1/2 hours before
 serving.  Makes 1 1/2 to 2 pints.  Penny Halsey
