​JamieOliver: Roasted grapes with cheese.


1 kg black grapes , on the vinea few sprigs of fresh thyme, 1 tablespoon golden caster sugar, extra virgin olive oil,  splash of red wine vinegar, 50 g  Cheddar cheese, 75 g crème fraîche, 250 g Tunworth cheese (or any good camembert-style cheese), 1 bunch of fresh sage, fresh breadwalnuts

When the temperature on your wood-fired oven has reached roughly 220ºC (check with your thermometer) and the smoke and flames have died down, start cooking (or preheat your regular oven to 220ºC/425ºF/gas 7.)

Place the grapes in a large roasting tray, pick over the the thyme leaves, sprinkle with the sugar, then drizzle with olive oil and the vinegar.Roast for 5 to 10 minutes, keeping an eye on them and turning when necessary, until the grapes are just starting to catch and burst open.Roughly chop the Cheddar into large chunks. Remove the tray from the oven and spoon over dollops of crème fraîche, scatter over the Cheddar chunks, then tear up the Tunworth and nestle the pieces in and among the grapes.
Pick the sage leaves, then drizzle with oil and scatter over the top. Pop the dish back in the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt.Serve in the middle of the table with good bread and wine.
And for us… Swedish in Sweden:

Mycket lätt. Och mycket gott. Låter lite krångligt på engelska. Kunde säga: 220 grader, släng druvor (jag tog fikon och päronklyftor också), timjan, råsocker, vinäger och olja på en plåt, 10 min, släng på fraichen och ostbitarna, 5 min till! Ok, oljade salviablad på toppen blev krispigt.
Den där Jamie har lärt oss en annan sak: Styckfrys druvorna! Bra att ha senare… även som godis. Låt smälta i munnen…frisk syrlig karamell!
