Most people when first hearing of roasted grapes make a strange face and disregard the possibility that grapes could take on a delicious sweet and smoky quality after a quick go-round in the oven. I brought this dish to a friend's house for dinner so they didn't have much choice but to give it a try and everyone loved it.
This would make a fantastic dish alongside chicken or seafood. Do you have any fun roasted grape recipes?
