Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F Place grapes in an 11 X 7 inch baking dish.
  2. Stir the sugar, Moscato, lemon juice, apricot jam, and vanilla bean in a bowl until blended. Pour over the grapes.
  3. Cut pears lengthwise through the core, and remove the stems, cores, and seeds. Place the pears, cut side up, between the grapes.
  4. Bake, uncovered, until the pears are tender and the liquid is thick and syrupy (50 min - 1 hour).
  5. Remove the pears, and let them rest until the syrup thickens - about 10 minutes.
  6. Serve warm with some grapes and syrup drizzled over the pears.

This is really good. I think it would also be good served with vanilla ice cream. While I have grilled and baked fruit before, I never thought of adding grapes. It is really good.

This was wonderful except I made bad substitutions, lol. I didn't have the wine so I used apple juice but didn't cut back on the sugar so it was too sweet. But it was delicious & my finicky dd loved it.
