I’ve been wanting to make Deanna’s recipe for Rosemary Shrimp Skewers for almost two years now. (It’s one of our most popular posts ever!)
So I bought a little rosemary tree and have been waiting FOREVER for it to grow stalks long enough to use as skewer sticks. (Yes, I know I could probably just buy them, but, you know, once you get an idea in your head, you hate to kill the picturesque image!)
So when I was thinking about The Recipe ReDux Fall in Love with Grapes recipe contest sponsored by the California Table Grape Commission I asked my kids what I should make with one of their three favorite fruits: Green grapes, red grapes and purple grapes:
8 year old girl said: “Grape Dip”
5 year old girl said: “Grape Kababs”
3 year old boy said: “Grape Ice Cream”
Baby said: “Hi!”
All are very good options…and I will probably be trying to create all the recipes since California Grapes are gloriously in season May to January. But the 5-year-old’s idea made me think of my struggling little rosemary tree. The tree still has a way to go. But I did harvest one branch and it made one lovely fragrant woodsy skewer (thus there is only ONE rosemary skewer in these photos!) But regular metal skewers still made delicious Grilled Grape & Rosemary Chicken Kabobs.
I altered the original recipe to what I had on hand – but the amazing flavor of rosemary, lemon grilled grapes is something you have to try!
What’s your favorite color of Table Grapes?
