Grapes with Yogurt and Honey

It’s official … the grape harvest has been blessed in traditional form in Armenian churches around the globe. So it’s time to appreciate this sweet fruit of the vine.

In addition to eating grapes as they come naturally, there are numerous ways to use grapes in recipes - cakes, compotes, candies, jams, salads - you name it!

Or you can skip the fuss and make this really easy grape dessert for family, guests, or just for yourself!

Grapes with Yogurt and Honey
Makes about 4 servings

Ingredients:
1 large bunch seedless red or green grapes (or a combination of the two)
1 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons honey (light-brown sugar may be substituted)
Cinnamon for garnish, optional

 Directions:
1. Remove from stems from grapes and discard. (Only use firm, unblemished grapes.) Wash grapes and pat dry. Grapes can be left whole if they're on the smaller side. However, if using large grapes, you may want to slice them in half first. Place in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. 
2. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt and honey.
3. Place grapes in individual serving bowls. Place a dollop of yogurt-honey mixture over grapes. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon, if you wish – and enjoy!
