Tuscan Grape as well as Rosemary Focaccia (Schiacciata a l'Uva)


With marketplace tables as well as bins groaning nether the weight of an extraordinary abundance as well as diversity of local produce, belatedly summertime as well as early on autumn are genuinely wonderful seasons for cooks inwards southwestern Ontario — I daresay that almost every fruit, vegetable, light-green as well as herb that I've cooked amongst over the past times few months has been grown locally, sometimes equally locally equally my ain backyard! One of the treats that I await most forrad to every autumn harvest are baskets of gorgeous deep blueish Coronation grapes. Sweet, tangy as well as juicy, these colorful picayune gems — sometimes known only equally "blue grapes" — are essentially a diversity of Concord grapes amongst all the glorious Concord grape flavor but without seeds, making them perfect as well as tardily for snacking on.

And snack on the get-go few baskets I ever do, but I'm also on the hunt for ideas to comprise them into recipes equally good to showcase their unique gustation inwards something to a greater extent than elaborate than a snack bowl. This recipe has been hiding inwards my draft folder for several months now, long since the end fourth dimension blueish grapes were inwards season, but similar a shot that I've gone through several baskets of this year's crop it was fourth dimension to pose it together inwards this savory as well as only slightly sweetness Tuscan focaccia staff of life amongst rosemary, toasted pino nuts as well as olive petroleum — or what everyone else inwards Italy calls focaccia but is called schiacciata or "flattened down" inwards Tuscany.

This traditional staff of life is made during the vino grape harvest inwards Tuscany, as well as I suspect that it's made non as well as hence much inwards celebration of the harvest equally for a snack to proceed the vineyard workers going during the day. For us non-vineyard people, it's a wonderful low-cal fresh leavened staff of life speckled amongst beautiful circles of royal as well as a surprisingly tasty combination of the grapes as well as fresh rosemary. My hubby as well as I were delighted both amongst the gustation as well as the soft texture of the staff of life interspersed amongst picayune crunchy toasted pino nuts. We ate this for dessert, for a late-night snack, as well as for breakfast the adjacent day!


If y'all can't abide by Coronation grapes, practise experience costless to substitute whatever fairly tart as well as not-too-sweet cherry or dark tabular array grape.
