Author Notes: The name pretty much says it all. I adore sweet black grapes, which are in season in the late summer. I tried to come up with something fabulous to swirl into this sorbet, but after I tasted it, I realized it needed nothing. Just black grapes - hence the name! I leave the skins on the grapes. Because, resveratrol. And texture. —CravingSomethingHealthy
