Cooking with Kelly: Patriotic grilled dessert

It was quite hot in Tucson for the holiday, so I whipped up a dessert that I could cook outside. This is a grilled apple a la mode dessert with bluberry sauce.

You will need:

2 red apples, cored and sliced in halves

Spritz of cooking oil

Ice cream of your choosing

2 cups blueberries, fresh or thawed
1/3 cup sugar

1/4 water

Zest and juice of one lemon

1 tablespoon butter

2 tablespoons sugar (for garnishing)

Combine the blueberries, 1/3 cup sugar, water, lemon and butter in a sauce pan. Cooking on the grill for 15 minutes, stirring often and crushing the berries to release the juice. Place oiled apple slices cut down on the grill, cook for right to 10 minutes and turn over. While it cooks on the other side, dust the presentation side with sugar; it will melt as the other side cooks.

Put the apple on a plate, cut side up, and top with ice cream and sauce. Viola!

It was really tasty and there was a variety of textures to keep my mouth happy. The lemon kept the dish fresh too. My roommates also approved, so I would definately make it again. You can use the leftover berry sauce on ice cream, toast, pancakes or crepes.
