Cooking with grapes

Could you?  Would you?

I have been thinking about his since the incessant grape pie talk.  Today, I made oatmeal, and had an excess of grapes, so I thought I would begin playing around with them.

I chopped them in half to get the liquid out when boiling, and was hoping for a bit of decomposition.  I used a lot of grapes, red grapes.  I figured to get the sweetness from them and maybe a bit of grape flavor, but got just a bit of sweetness from them.  I smushed a banana in there later to amp up flavor.

It was ok, not bad, but not much grape flavor.  My conclusion is that you have to use a lot of grapes of a different, tarter variety to get grape flavor in any kind of concentration.  The experiment was successful in that I learned something.

The end.

I can't.  Grapes and wine have been removed from my cooking.  My husband is allergic to grapes.

Not being able to cook with wine is a major setback for a foodie.  I definitely love this guy.

Wine is overrated anyway.  What happens if he has it?

You are right.  My stint as a QCbot at Cereal City fried my taste receptors!  Damn was I glad when that place got shuttered back in 07 and Kellogs sold me to Blockbuster? I wonder if I am bad luck?  I hope SW did not pay too much for me when he bought me from Sears.
