How to Roast Grapes

Admittedly, I never even thought to roast grapes until a few years back when we had a sponsored Recipe ReDux contest with the California Table Grape Commission.

Upon brainstorming, I discovered you could roast grapes much like tomatoes (another fruit!) Like any roasted fruit or veggies, the method results in a deeper, richer flavor from the oven heat. Recipe result from that contest: Honey Roasted Grapes with Peanut Butter Granola.

And it’s SO EASY. You don’t even need to remove the grapes from the stems. Simply plop them on a sheet lined with parchment or cooking spray, brush with some oil and pop into the oven.

They taste like grape jelly in your hand – naturally sweet and an awesome addition to so many recipes – case in point:

What to do with roasted grapes (besides eating them out of your hand):

  • Mix into oatmeal or add to cold cereal
  • Mix into grain dishes like quinoa, rice and farro
  • Toss over leafy green salads
  • Pair with roasted root veggies like potatoes, sweet potatoes, and beets
  • Use as a topping for grilled chicken or pork
  • Top over waffles, pancakes
  • Add to muffin and quick bread batters
  • Add to energy bites/balls

I dare you not to eat most of them before you use them as toppings for other dishes. Even better, plan to roast up two bunches – one of snacking and one to add to recipes.
