I had a bag of grapes that I froze. I love frozen grapes but for some reason I wasn’t taking them to work with me like I had planned. One day I stumbled on this roasted grape recipe and I thought this could be something fun to try. Disclaimer: they are delicious.
Remi’s Recipe (with modifications from frenchgardnerdishes)
original recipe: roasted grapes
For the grapes:
- 1 mostly-full bad of green seedless grapes, frozen, taken off the stems. This can also be done with red seedless grapes. I’m sure it’s good.
- 1 T of olive oil
- 1 T sugar
- generous pinch of cinnamon
- 1 T pumpkin pie spice
- sprinkling of salt
- Preheat oven to 450 F. Toss the grapes in the olive oil. Place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the spices and sugar and finish with a sprinkling of sea salt.
- Bake 20 minutes, tossing a few times to prevent burning. Serve warm. This pairs well with vanilla creme fraiche but could also pair well with whipped cream, yogurt cream (as the original recipe suggests), or ice cream.
Would I make this again? yes. If I had a bunch of grapes that I wasn’t going to use for anything else. I was curious what using frozen grapes would do to the texture of the grapes. Usually when they’re frozen and you bite into them there’s a bunch of trapped water and it kind of makes a mess. In this recipe the grape skin burst a little so it mitigated that issue. These were sweet and yummy and felt like a classier dessert than they really were. My roommates ate some and approved of this dish.
