I can't bear to cook fruit!

I have a hard time finding many (any?) instances where cooked fruit is better than raw. When fruit is cooked, it loses all of its lovely tart notes (mostly the fruit I love best has a sweet/tart balance} and its texture turns to mush.

But I know lots of people out there use fruits in cooked form in desserts and other dishes. If you know of a cooked fruit preparation/recipe that rivals the experience of having the same fruit raw, please share. I'd like to widen my perspective a little.

That and I have a tendency to overbuy or overpick the fruits I love when they're available, and then I find myself eating tons and tons of exactly the same thing. Not a terrible problem but now that I'm on my second 20 lb box of nectarines in a month, my husband is asking me to please have a plan for them...
