Looking for an easy but elegant alternative to pie this Thanksgiving? Toss any variety of grapes in honey, olive oil, and sea salt and roast.

Roasted Red Grapes with Mascarpone and Rum
Roasted Red Grapes with Mascarpone and Rum

1 lb. seedless red grapes, left on the stems and cut into small clusters
4 tsp. honey
1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. flaky sea salt
1/2 cup mascarpone
1-1/2 Tbs. regular or spiced dark rum
1 tsp. finely grated orange zest

Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 475°F.

In a large bowl, gently toss the grape clusters, 2 tsp. of the honey, the oil, and the salt. Spread the grapes on a large rimmed baking sheet in a single layer and roast, flipping halfway through, until collapsed, juicy, and somewhat caramelized, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together the mascarpone, rum, zest, and remaining 2 tsp. honey in a medium bowl.

Transfer the roasted grapes to serving dishes and serve warm, with a dollop of the sweetened mascarpone.

sbreckenridge writes: Hi bijoux, that liquid you're referring to is just an extra splash of rum (the more the merrier!) and the honey is listed once in the recipe, 4 tsp. total. 2 tsp. gets mixed with the grapes, the other 2 tsp. goes into the mascarpone.

bijoux writes: right after the rum is added to marscapone, it appears the cook squeezes a liquid into the cheese, but nothing is mentioned about it in the video or the recipe. they next thing added is the honey.

can anyone tell what it is that is squeezed? Posted: 10:47 am on November 18th
