Found on Sounds like a unique twist to me........... Used for ZWT 3 with Midwest and South as the regions, blueberries in Michigan and peaches in Georgia.

So simple in its construction and divine in flavors, this is one you are left wondering "why didn't I think of that?" I love the sharp contrast of fruit with balsamic and often enjoy it with strawberries or oranges. I am planning to make this as an elegant dessert for a BBQ grilling the peach halves and pouring the blueberries and sauce on top. Yummy!
