Georgian grape pudding
( SERVES 6 )
This is an easy, full-flavoured, not-to-sweet dessert.
- Place the grape juice in a heavy saucepan and bring almost to a simmer. Keep at this temperature for about 2 hours or until it has reduced by half (2 cups).
- Combine the flour and sugar in a bowl. Stir about 1/2 a cup of the reduction slowly into the flour until smooth. You may want to mix it with an egg beater. Stir back into the remaining juice over low heat or cook in the microwave, until thick. Ensure there is no raw flour taste. Stir in the balsamic vinegar.
- Pour into a serving dish or individual dishes and chill.
- Serve with grapes, and walnuts on the side plus seasonal berries. Whipped cream or yoghurt complement the dish.
