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. Serve with a dollop of rum mascarpone and you’ve got an unexpected holiday-worthy dessert that cooks in the same amount of time it takes to rinse the dinner dishes.
|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.
