Grapes on the grill
Next time you serve pork, poultry or fish, try this recipe of grilled grapes from the California Table Grape Commission. Wash and drain 6 medium bunches of seedless grapes, brush with extra-virgin olive oil and wind 6 branches of fresh rosemary and 6 branches of fresh thyme among the grape clusters. Grill over medium-hot coals, turning frequently, 15-20 minutes until grapes have grill marks and a few start to split. Makes 6 servings.
