Roasted Grapes – A Warm Appetizer

Last Updated on

Roasted grapes are a sweet treat, and perfect for a grape appetizer, dessert or a charcuterie tray.



We first had roasted grapes down at a downtown Omaha Restaurant earlier this summer. Both of us were struck at how simple yet elegant this dish came out. When we ran across a bunch of beautiful concord grapes at the Omaha Farmer’s Market, of course making some roasted grapes out of them popped into our head.

The richly colored purple grapes had a fresh and wonderful aromatic scent. It filled our kitchen with the scent and made us very excited to use these in various recipes. Roasting them made them tender and slightly sweeter, the flavors bright and aromatic in this grape appetizer.

We were having some friends over for a nice evening and to share some of our wine we got on our last trip to Napa.  We of course wanted something that would fit along with that great bottle, so making a cheese board seemed like a great fit. Cheese boards are a perfect accompaniment to wine as you and your guests can nibble on the various offerings while sipping.



Here are some great choices: Marble and Copper Cheese Board, Italian Olivewood Slice Cheese Paddle, Rectangular Slate Platter!






Typically consisting of cheese along with crostinis and various spreads, the roasted grapes were a perfect addition to the cheese board. The roasting made the grapes super tender and spreadable.



Here are some great ideas to go on your cheese board with those fabulous grapes! Cheers

  1. Oh my gosh..I never would have thought to do that! And that spread you put together looks fabulous!!!

  2. I’m not sure about that but I’ve tried lots of things that I wasn’t sure about and then when I tried it I loved it. I do love concord grapes!

  3. I have never heard of or eaten roasted grapes. Sounds wonderfully delicious though! I just bought some cheese for a dinner with friends we have this Friday, for a cheese and cracker plate. I am definitely adding this to it as well! ?
