I had seen a few recipes for roasted grapes and finally decided to try it out after seeing it featured on vegetariantimes.com. The recipe they featured called for olives and honey but I didn't have those on hand. I think the olives would have added a nice salty element but olives just didn't seem like the right fit, maybe capers. To replace the honey I used maple syrup which proved to be a great addition. ALWAYS use real maple syrup, colored corn syrup is not it, even if it is $6 cheaper.
Roasted Rosemary Grapes with Maple Walnuts
2T FRESH rosemary
1T olive oil
2T balsamic vineger
1T mapel syrup
salt to taste
1/3C walnuts, chopped
1.5lbs seedless red grapes
1. Heat the oil and rosemary over med-high heat for about five minutes.
2. Mix everything else together and toss to coat the grapes. Pour the rosemary and oil over the grapes and transfer this mixture to a baking sheet.
3. Bake for 15 minutes at 350. Serve hot or cold
