Grape Fool

Author Notes

Adapted from the recipe for Grapes with Brown Sugar and Sour Cream in James Beard’s American Cookery and inspired by my dunking a grape directly into the container of sour cream, then into the sugar bowl, and popping it right into my mouth. This is way more classy. —mrslarkin

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Whip the cream to stiff peaks. Careful; don’t make butter. Gently fold into the sour cream. Chill.
  2. Halve some, or all, of the grapes. Elegantly layer the ingredients into pretty glasses. Alternatively, divvy up the grapes into serving bowls, spoon the cream on top and sprinkle with turbinado.
