  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt — any
  • drizzle of apple syrup honey, maple syrup or agave

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 400F. In a small baking dish add the grapes, pinch of salt, drizzle of olive oil, drizzle of Apple syrup, and a sprig of thyme.
  • Cover it and bake until the grapes are oozing and nice and soft, mine took 30 minutes. In a food processor add the feta, drizzle of olive oil, oranges, plain yogurt, a drizzle of apple syrup and process until frothy for 1-2 minutes.
  • You can always open and scrape it down and process again. Add the whipped feta to a plate and top it off with your caramelized grapes. Enjoy with any fresh bread or even crostini.

Notes

Please note: I like creamy Macedonian style feta in here more because it’s less salty and very creamy but any that you love will work.
