2 pounds peaches (about 6 to 8 peaches)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
2 cups blueberries
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar and a separate 1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Start with the blueberries. Combine 2 cups fresh blueberries, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring until a syrup forms -- about 6 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Pit and peel the 2 pounds of fresh peaches, then chop them (enough to make 3 1/2 cups); you can leave the skin on if you prefer. Toss peaches in a large mixing bowl with 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon salt. Let sit for a few minutes to absorb flavor.

For the cobbler topping: In another large mixing bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 egg, and whisk. Add 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 cup flour, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup milk. Beat well with a wire whisk until mixture is smooth and resembles a cake batter.

To layer, use a 3-quart rectangular casserole dish, and spread the peach mixture evenly across the bottom. Spoon the blueberry mixture evenly over the peaches. Then pour the batter evenly over the blueberries.

Bake in a 375-degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes, in order for flavors to meld before serving. Serve warm with ice cream.

Personal Notes:
A slight twist on the straight berry or mixed berry dessert. Emeril Lagasse whips up a very simple cobbler that beautifully combines the flavors and colors of two fruits you might not think of pairing together -- peaches and blueberries. The dessert is lighter than a regular cobbler. When baked, the cake batter is not as dense as most cobblers and gives more accent to the fruit.
