rosemary & wild grape focaccia





A few weeks ago, I was visiting my daughter and daughter-in-law when (happily) Anni pulled out a hot, gorgeous - what IS that?  Bread?  Pizza? Cake?- out of the oven.  She cut off a chunk and I tasted the most remarkable whatever-it-was.  Salty and sweet, juicy and toasty.  It turned out to be an amazing soft focaccia made with rosemary, sea salt, sugar, and wild grapes that Anni and just-now 2 year old Frankie had just picked from grapevines beside the road.   She generously packed up half a yogurt container with those fragrant fruits , which I took home - and forgot about in my pneumonia haze.

I found them today .  And guess what I made?

Yup, and you can find the recipe here, which Anni got from her blogger best friend at Ben and Birdy.

Remarkable, amazing, and delicious.

I"ve always wanted to make this but somehow always miss the season... will now be on the lookout for grapes!

Hope you find some! The grapes I used had been in the fridge a while - a few were wrinkled but all were still juicy and amazingly perfumed. Good luck!

Lovely bread and lovely photos. Hope you have recovered. Pneumonia sounds dreadful.

Thanks, Marianne! Doing much better - it just takes time to get your energy back. Breathing is fine, though I still have to use an inhaled medication at night, just to be sure.

Mmmm...wait! You have wild grapes? I happen to have some black grapes in the fridge well past their prime and think they just may be perfect for this. I can taste it now...

Kelly - I would cut them in halves or quarters before using - these wild grapes were teeny! I say, give it a try!
