Summer cooking is all about quick and easy, and this recipe fits the bill. Assorted colored grapes are marinated in a sweet Moscato wine syrup enlivened with fresh mint. Arrange the ice-cold grapes in a pretty goblet (or a half melon), and dessert is served!
fresh mint (cut into thin ribbons, or chiffonade)
Earthbound Farm Organic Seedless Grapes (red, green or both, cut in half)
Mint sprigs (as garnish, optional)
Place the wine and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then raise the heat to high. Boil the syrup for 2 minutes. Transfer the syrup to a bowl and let it cool for 5 minutes. Add the grapes and the mint. Toss gently to coat.
Refrigerate the fruit mixture for at least 4 hours or up to 8 hours.
To serve, divide the grapes among 4 goblets and add a tablespoon or two of the syrup to each serving. Garnish with mint, if you like. Serve cold.
