"Why roast grapes?"...the husband asked. Until he tasted them. Now he gets it.
The grocery store is full of sweet grapes right now, and roasting them brings out even more of their flavor, almost a cinnamon-clove nuance. They are the perfect addition to add to any salad that you might have added dried cranberries or cherries. Or serve them on the side with roast pork or chicken. Add them to a pan sauce you are pouring over meat. The possibilities are endless. Or just snack on them.
Either way they are completely fantastic and add depth and flavor to any meal. Not to mention they are so easy to make. It's hardly even a recipe.
So, celebrate the grape harvest by adding these to your meal this week, you will love them.
