Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy. Add cornstarch, almond extract, and cream of tartar; beat for 30 seconds more. Spread into six 4-inch circles on prepared baking sheet, making a well in the center with the back of a spoon. Bake for 45 minutes, then turn oven off and leave meringues in the oven with the door closed for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool.

Stir together honey, lemon juice, and extract; drizzle over nectarines.
