Grapes with Brown Sugar and Sour Cream

Grapes with Brown Sugar and Sour Cream

4 ½ cups green, red or black seedless grapes, halved
6 Tbsps. brown sugar
2 cups sour cream

1. Divide and arrange ¾ cup of halved grapes in each of six dessert dishes. Sprinkle each with brown sugar and top with 1/3 cup sour cream.

2. Chill until ready to serve.

Note: A fancier version of this classic dessert is called Grapes Romanov. For this version, arrange halved grapes in individual heatproof serving dishes, but top first with sour cream and then brown sugar. Chill for at least 1 hour so the brown sugar melts into sour cream, then caramelize or “brulee” the sugar with a small torch or by placing the dishes under a preheated broiler until sugar is bubbly, about 2 minutes.
