Roasted Grapes & Thyme

Next time you have friends over, surprise them with these delightful roasted grapes as a snack with cheese and crackers. They are sweet and salty (one of Michelle's favourite flavour combinations), juicy and crunchy.

It goes great with bruschetta and cheese when friend drop in unexpectedly, but you can also serve it cold in a salad or warm with a Sunday roast.

 

Ingredients

Punnet of grapes (300-500g)

Olive oil

Sea salt flakes

Thyme

Instructions

  1. Place the punnet of grapes, stems and all, in an ovenproof dish. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a teaspoon of sea salt flakes
  2. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 30-50 minutes, depending on the grape variety - you want the sugars in the grape to caramelise.
  3. Remove from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Sprinkle a little more salt to taste before serving.

Serving suggestion

Oven-roasted grapes are a divine crowd pleaser when combined with homemade ricotta and freshly made bruschetta.

At their #TuttiFruttiPopup, the girls from Weekend Eatery combined roasted grapes with sweet potato, and we couldn't stop sneaking one bite after another.
