The Coronation of Purple

Enthroned by red and blue for your independent and wise soul, you maintain your position with dignity; perhaps with even a little magic and mystery.  Creativity you spark in many and for a few you enhance their spirituality. The adventurous seek out your Purple flare, for it is the heart of this royal that they willingly dare. 

The Coronation Grape is bold in both its colour and flavour and deserves royal attention with every taste.

With just a few morsels left from Autumn, I bake the grapes in my oven topped with butter. I toast a few walnuts for a might crunch.  Lemon and Thyme I infuse into cream, then whip until it's a stiff peak. Fold into mascarpone and you have a treat fit for a King and Queen.
