Keeping a stash of simple beautiful desserts like this one, is the key to effortless entertaining. Think of how many times you've wanted to invite a new†acquaintance†but knew you didn't have time to bake anything special. Simple desserts like these, bring a sense of awe to the table. Who knew easy and elegant could come together so beautifully?
We typically have a dessert after our Saturday evening meal. Dad and the kids set up a board game while I make a quick dessert. It makes family night just that much more special. Roasted grapes are a favorite with the kids, as roasting definitely brings out the natural sweetness and with a dash of cayenne pepper, these grapes have a delicious depth with a bit of a kick. Note: If serving it to the little ones, I leave the cayenne out, but my teenagers enjoy them either way.
It's important to purchase organic grapes (particularly imported), as they are in the dirty dozen list of most pesticide laden produce†and due to packaging have a doubly large carbon footprint.
