Grilling concentrates the flavor of the peaches and caramelizes its natural sugars. Anti-oxidant rich blueberries are lightly cooked to make a quick compote. The combination creates a light and refreshing dessert that highlights fresh summer fruit. If you don't want to fire up the grill, you cook the peaches on a grill pan indoors, or on a hot cast-iron skillet. The recipe calls for fresh blueberries, but you could easily sub in frozen blueberries.

    I have cooked the peaches and brown sugar mixture in an iron skillet. They taste great. You have to be creative with a thunderstorm outside.
