Roasted Grapes with Thyme and Homemade Ricotta served on crusty bread is a ridiculously easy and fast appetizer or lunch. Salty, sweet, creamy, crunchy. Sublime.
You made the homemade ricotta, right? And you couldn’t believe how crazy easy it was, right?
Why do we constantly assume certain foods are so hard to make, when they’re actually so simple. In the time it takes you to make the ricotta, it would have taken even longer to go to the market and return with what wouldn’t even taste as good!
Anyway, you made it. But you ate it all…because it was just THAT good. Amiright? I understand. Well, make some more! You must. Because this tartine (look at me getting all French and fancy) is utterly delicious. I can’t get enough of it.
And who knew roasted grapes were so fantastic?! Paired with a little salt, a little fresh herb, on fresh ricotta and crusty bread…humana humana.
Get ready to sink your teeth into wonderful. This is truly one of my favorite things!

I missed this originally. Only because it’s you, Amy, I’m going to venture into the realm of roasted grapes. You make it sound too good not to try!
Where has this been all my life?
dang this looks good!
Looks like appetizer party fare to me… and I’ll bet this would be scrumptious with my favorite herb…rosemary :)
Once I learned how to make ricotta, I never bought another tub! It’s so easy and rewarding!
Simple and good quality ingredients are enough to have a very satisfying, even extraordinary dish. I have never had roasted grapes, but I already know that I would love this “tartine”:)
I hope you resolve the tech issues – I sometimes wish I were Amish:)
I feel crostini season coming on which means that this is all I’m going to want to eat ever anon. Until October hits again.
Hope you get the internets stuff worked out soon! I am so clueless when it comes to all of this and any problems give me the chills. Fingers crossed that it all goes back to normal asap!
