Contributed by: herbie43

Note from the Diva
You can also make this recipe using nectarines, apricots or even pears and apples. You can also substitute any berry.

List of Ingredients
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup crisp, light bodied white wine
2 3 x 1/2 inch strips of orange zest
1 small cinnamon stick broken in half
1 3-inch vanilla bean, or 2 tsps vanilla extract
6 oranges, ripe peaches, halved and pitted
4 small (1 inch) fresh rosemary sprigs (optional)
2 cups fresh whole blueberries

Preparation
Accompaniaments -- cream fraiche, yogurt, or ice cream

Preheat oven to 375 deg.
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, wine, orange zest, and cinnamon stick. split the vanilla bean lengthwise, scrape its seeds into the saucepan, then add the bean (or add vanilla extract, if using). Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes or so. Remove the pan from the heat.

Place the peaches cut side up in a baking dish just large enough to hold them in a single layer. tuck rosemary sprigs, if using, in between the peaches and pour the sugar syrup over them. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, basting frequently, or until the peaches are cooked through but still maintain their shape. after 20 minutes you can sprinkle the blueberries around the peaches to let them soften just a little and infuse the peaches and syrup with their flavor. (if you put them in sooner they will cook to mush, if you put them in later they won't really cook at all. whatever you like is fine).

Spoon the fruits and syrup into bowls and serve warm or at room temperature with creme fraiche, yogurt or ice cream.
