How to Roast Grapes (And What to Do With Them)
They can (and should) be more than just a pop-in-your-mouth snack.
How do you upgrade a snack time favorite? By roasting them.
I know: grapes are ready-made for snacking. But there's something about munching on a handful of grapes that makes me feel like a kid. They made a regular appearance in my lunch box and there was always a bunch or two in a bowl in the fridge ready to grab when my sister and I wanted a snack. Roasted grapes, though? Roasted grapes are sophisticated.
Toss grapes with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast them on a sheet pan for about 30 minutes at 425°F. The grapes will get blistered and caramelized on the outside, and extra juicy and practically jammy on the inside. To get fancier, throw some hardy fresh herbs like rosemary or thyme in the pan—they'll perfume the grapes, making them just the right amount of savory.
