RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY
"On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.

Food.com won't let me give this 10 stars, so I had to suffice with 5. This was great!<br/><br/>I roasted an entire bunch of grapes (about 4 cups) and got a very small bowl of finished product, so don't be afraid to double the recipe as I did.<br/><br/>I tossed the grapes in a bowl instead of a bag, and I roasted them in a 500 degree convection oven for something like 25 minutes. Be careful--when you open the oven to check on the grapes, you may be hit in the face with a cloud of hot steam if your grapes are quite juicy. One other thing to note is that you MUST use a rimmed baking sheet, as there was quite a bit of juice. Some recipes have you boil the juice down with honey to make a sauce, but I didn't bother.<br/><br/>I served the grapes with a cheese plate. What a great combination--salty, sharp cheese and unctuously sweet roasted grapes.<br/><br/>One final note: my grapes didn't burn, but the juice on the edge of the pan was just about to when I pulled the pan out of the oven.
I do this often and serve with sausages, roasted chicken or pork. The only difference is that I will sometimes add a sprig of something herby (rosemary, oregano, whatever goes with the meal) and do this in a foil pouch. Also works well on a grill. Since I tend to serve this with a roasted meat, I simply pop it in the oven at whatever temp its already on. I also remove the stem for easy of eating. A wonderful sauce collects at the bottom of the foil. Great post!
