No evening is complete without dessert, and a crumble is a healthy way to enjoy something sweet. Apple and peach is all well and good, but go for the gusto with something different. Try pineapple and adding blueberries to the mix and see what happens. This Grilled Pineapple, Peach, and Blueberry Crumble is superb when served à la mode.

Pineapple, Peach, and Blueberry Crumble

Serves: 6 to 8       Total Time: 60 minutes


  • 1 baking dish large enough to hold 3 qts/ litres, buttered
  • ½ cup melted butter

  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • Whipped cream or ice cream


Step 1
Preheat grill to medium (350ºF/175ºC).

Brush the ½ cup melted butter over both sides of the peach and pineapple slices. Place the peach slices on the grill for 1 minute on each side. Cut into 1-inch chunks and place in prepared dish. Grill the pineapple slices for 5 to 6 minutes a side, until well marked. Cut into 1-inch chunks and add to the peaches. Add the blueberries, ginger, and rum and mix well.

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream on the side.

What was your favorite crumble as a child? Mine was always my mother’s Apple Crumble with loads of cinnamon and brown sugar, and piled with far too much whipped cream. Now that I have grown up, and can make it myself, grilling the apples first adds a great spin on my old favorite.

Happy Grilling!
