Turn peaches over; spoon brown sugar mixture into centers. Cook 5 minutes longer; remove from grill.

Expert Tips

Blueberries or raspberries can be substituted for the blackberries.

If you have leftover peaches (or want to grill some extras), refrigerate for another use. They make a great salad—chop the peaches and serve on mixed greens with crumbled blue cheese and balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
