Black And Green Grapes Panna Cotta Recipe

The best thing about spring is that you get to eat GRAPES! It’s always good to eat fruits that are seasonal as you get the best quality at that time. Usually grapes have a sweet and tart taste, but when you buy them in season, they are like sugary sweet and you can’t resist yourself from munching them. This antioxidant rich berry can be used as a between-meal snack, in salads, in custards, in fruit cream and many more

So this time I tried to use them in a whole different way. One of my favorite desserts is panna cotta and I always experiment with different flavours. Now it was the turn of grapes.
