Grape Tart
Grape TartOur vine, is loaded this year with tasteful, black grapes.
This is also a great temptation for birds, beetles, turtles (yes, yes, they eat grapes hanging low enough, almost touching the ground due to elevation difference) … and for us of course!
After we ate countless grapes, starting from the time they began to get a dark blue color, when it was still a bit tart, it was time for the production of grape desserts.
