A Serving of Fruit--Part of Maury Place's Complete Breakfast!

As believers of the philosophy that variation is the spice of life, we have added a new breakfast confection to our Maury Place breakfast menu. We always like to start our breakfasts with a serving of fruit, and we have discovered a delicious new recipe.
We begin with the ingredients:
1 cup green grapes (or 1/2 c. each of red and green grapes), halved
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp honey
Optional: sliced almonds

1. Remove grapes from stem and place in two dessert dishes.
2. Mix honey with lemon juice and lemon zest in a small bowl
3. Spoon over the grapes and serve!

*The recipe recommends an organic lemon to avoid a wax coating.

Serves 2

We are delighted to share the recipe for this delectable and unique dish. This delicious fruit concoction is great as an aperitif or as a healthful dessert, and by not exposing the fruit to baking temperatures, it retains all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that would otherwise be broken down during the baking process. It is also a fun and attractive way to use grapes, which are almost always available throughout the year.
Bon appetit!
