Roasted Grapes

“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.

    Try them with grilled bread, goat cheese and some honey. Perfection!

    I can’t believe it. Just today I thought about roasting grapes and wondered if anyone has ever done it. What timing.

    I thought of it the same day you did! Funny how we all thought of it in a similar time frame!

    Kathy, I left a comment but didn’t get posted. I’ll try again. Try the roasted grapes by making a pizza dough or focaccia, place red sweet grapes all around, drizzle with olive oil and finely minced rosemary. Bake til golden. Like you would pizza. Delicious snack or appetizer with your wine!

  7. Love this idea! So simple and creative… I’ll be trying this soon.

    We made these tonight and even the kids loved them. What doesn’t taste better with olive oil and salt?
