Wow - how can we be done desserts already? I don't know how it happened but her eit is, my last dessert recipe - Black Grape Gelato.
I have eaten my weight in gelato during various trips to Italy, in fact, one of the first things we do once we settled is to pop into a gelato shop. I don't care if it is 6 am or midnight, if I can find a shop that is open I shall indulge.
Interestingly enough, in all of those cones and cups over the years I have never asked for any grape to be added. I've had all sorts of flavours but never grape. I was able to correct that with this recipe (although not having a proper commercial gelato maker I shall have to try some out when I get to Italy this fall to compare).
This recipe is simple - sugar, water, grapes, whipping cream and that is it.
The sugar and water is combined to make a simple syrup. Pureed grapes are mixed in. The cream is then slightly whipped and added to the grape and syrup mixture. Into the ice cream freezer it is poured and not long after you're enjoying a wonderful treat!
Believe it or not, after this I only have one recipe left: Broccoli and Ricotta Conza . . .
