Two Second Ginger, Cream & Grape Dessert

"You can literally throw this together in 2 seconds and it is ever so good. If you want to sweeten the sour cream you may use a bit of brown sugar or Sweet & Low Brown sugar substitiute. I prefer it without sugar added there is sugar on the crystallized ginger"

  1. This is an incredible dessert! I don't normally enjoy grapes, but was intrigued by the ginger and tried it anyway. This is definitely a keeper!
  2. This is delicious and just my kind of dessert...quick to make, looks good and not too sweet. I have made this now twice. At the moment the prep time is a bit longer for me because I couldn't get seedless grapes and I split the grapes to remove the seeds. Instead of the crystalised ginger I also used preserved finely chopped ginger with some of the juices and that works great too. A keeper!!!
  3. Leave it to Bergy! This is great. Perfect summertime appy with white wine. Thanks!!
  4. Bergy, you liar! This took me at least 30 seconds to put together! But it's well worth the extra time, this is delicious. I used mostly green grapes with a few red ones thrown in for color. Had this for breakfast this morning and it was a great start to my day. I want to try this again but with vanilla yogurt instead, should be grape nirvana! Thanks, this is an excellent idea (don't know why I never thought of it myself)!


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.
