Wine Jelly with Grapes


1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin

2 tablespoons water

1 cup sugar

2 cups dry white or sparkling wine

about 15 ounces small, seedless red and green grapes

3/4 cup heavy cream

2 teaspoons sugar, more to taste

1 teaspoon vanilla extract or Cognac

Stir the gelatin into 2 tablespoons of water, and set aside to soften. put the sugar and wine in a saucepan, and heat to dissolve the sugar. do not boil. Remove the wine from the heat and whisk in the gelatin until completely dissolved. Cool.

Arrange the grapes in 6 ramekins or tea cups. Pour over the wine mixture. cover, and chill several hours to set.

To serve, run a knife around the edge of the molds and dip the bottoms into hot water for a few seconds, then invert onto serving plates.

In a bowl, whip the heavy cream with the sugar and flavoring to serve alongside. (I did not serve with the cream)

I served this for dessert:)
