While I am sure we all are enjoying apples and pumpkins, let’s not forget about other seasonal produce. For instance, grapes and specifically concord grapes. For this recipe I used Coronation grapes which is a hybrid variety of table grapes developed in Canada. Its deep purple-blue colour, texture, and flavour is similar to Concord grapes. But the main difference is that Coronation grapes are seedless (Which is a huge bonus).

The process is super easy. You will need to quickly sauté the grapes in the combination of butter, honey, thyme, and salt. Since the coronation grapes have a delicate skin, it’s the matter of few minutes. My friends, the aroma is almost breathtaking!

You can definitely use any other available variety of seedless grapes, but you might need to sauté them a bit longer. While Concord grapes would be delicious too, it’s not the best option because of its seeds.

For the spread itself, you will need to add a little bit of this aromatic grape sauce along with a few grapes and whip it up. Easy-peasy!

You can serve this with toasted baguette or plain crackers. But if you feel adventures, try serving with garlic crackers – that’s a really interesting combination.

I hope you like this Coronation Grape Goat Cheese, and you will try this idea soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.

If you like goat cheese with sweet additions, you will probably like this Coronation Grape Goat Cheese with grapes sautéed with honey, butter, and thyme.

Ingredients

  • about 1 and 1/2 cup of Coronation grapes (Or other seedless grapes)

  • 2 tbsp. butter

  • 2 tbsp. honey

  • 1 tsp. fresh or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme

  • a pinch of salt

  • about 250 gr. plain goat’s cheese

Directions

  • In a medium pan combine the butter and honey over high medium heat, until melted.
  • Add the grapes along with the thyme and salt and cook, occasionally stirring, just about 2 minutes or until the grapes start to burst. If you are using other variety of seedless grapes, you might need to cook it few minutes longer depending on their skin. Off heat. Cool.
  • For the spread, combine the goat cheese with 2-3 tablespoons of cooled grape sauce (Mostly grapes with some juice). Using a mixer or blender, whip it up for about 30 seconds. Adjust the desired consistency by adding more of the juice.
  • Transfer the goat cheese on a serving plate. Top with the remaining grapes and sauce. Depending on how much sauce you’ve got, you might want not to use it all, to avoid too watery situation. In this case, you can reserve it for a salad dressing. Enjoy!

    Another beauty, Ben. I would love to see this at a holiday get together — or really, any get together. I’d even make a meal of it. I love Concord grapes and grapes and goat cheese is perfect. With a glass of wine! :-D ~Valentina

    This is the first I’ve heard of Coronation grapes…they sound tasty. And seedless is a must for me with grapes! I can’t stand biting into a grape to find a seed inside. Normally I go more savory when goat cheese is involved, but this sounds quite fantastic, Ben. I bet this would be a great appetizer with a glass of wine!
