15 Ways to Use Grapes (Recipes)

  • 2 of 4


5. Roasted Grape Granita

Just one ingredient in this delectable dessert!

2 Pounds red table grapes, stemmed, thoroughly rinsed and dried

1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Arrange grapes on a baking pan. Roast until the grapes have browned and are crispy, around 20-25 minutes. If the pan is very crowded, stir 2-3 times while they’re roasting.
2. Remove from oven and let grapes cool completely. Place grapes in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. You may need to work in batches. Transfer puree to a sieve placed in a large bowl and strain.
3. Transfer grape mixture to the freezer. Freeze for at least 3 hours. Overnight is even better. While it’s freezing, scrape the granita with a fork every hour. It’s ready when it’s firm and flaky.
4. For extra grape flavor, serve with a little red wine poured over it.

Must try roasted grapes

Thank you, Terre! I've never heard of roasting grapes. I really must try.

I love grapes frozen, as Kamia mentions. Also, grapes are terrific roasted with potatoes and carrots! Organic grapes, always. I really miss them when they're out of season, but grapes are one of the fruits they spray heavily with pesticides.

I prefer my grapes frozen. Take them out and pop in your mouth. What a treat! I do like letting them also turn into raisins and adding them almost any type of salad. The combo of the sweet against the savory is quite enjoyable.

Well, I'm just coming from another Care2 article called "5 Food Combinations to Avoid" The foods suggested in "15 Ways to Use Grapes" is not congruent with that article at all ... I guess, I'm not the only one failing the combination deal. Ha!
