Wow your party guests with this gourmet dish!
1 1/2 cups of white grape juice (use the juicer to make your own juice)
2 lb seedless white grapes, peeled
2 oz roasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
4 sprigs of thyme (preferably lemon thyme), leave finely chopped
Festive Party skewers
Reserve about 20 grapes peeled for the dish. Juice the rest to yield 1 1/2 cups of juice. In a medium skillet over medium heat, bring juice to a rapid simmer. Cook until thick and syrupy and reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 15 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Skewer grapes with toothpicks or party skewers. Dip each into grape syrup, then roll in hazelnuts. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with thyme.
