In addition, grapes are known for their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular, anti-aging, longevity, cognitive, anti-microbial, and anti-cancer benefits. Makes you feel better about this dessert, right? One caveat. Conventionally grown grapes are known for being quite high in pesticide residues. I suggest you always buy organic grapes to avoid this concern. And make this roasted grapes recipe soon…really delicious.
Roasted Grapes with Balsamic
1/2 lb red grapes
1/2 lb white grapes
1 tbsp honey
extra virgin olive oil
pinch coarse grey salt
excellent quality aged balsamic vinegar
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Break off 6 small bunches of grapes, 4-6 grapes per bunch. Remove the rest of the grapes from the stems. Place the grapes and grape bunches on the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle the honey over the grapes. Repeat process with one pass of olive oil bottle (about 1 tbsp). Sprinkle salt over grapes.
Roast for 15 minutes, or until grapes have slightly wilted with skins a bit wrinkled. Remove from oven and allow to cool to warm. Pour into bowl (including any accumulated juice). Serve over softened vanilla ice cream, pudding or custard. Use the grape bunches as a garnish, one per serving. Drizzle balsamic over grapes and serve immediately.
