Moustalevria – Greek Grape Juice Bites
How delicious are the sweet Greek grapes and how delicious this dessert.
I presented this dish last year and this year I changed the recipe of the traditional moustralevria recipe as I wanted to prepare small pudding bites.
The change consisted in boiling the juice until I had only half of the volume, I did not change the other ingredients, but instead of pouring sesame seeds on the pudding I used them to coat the bottom of the bites.
- 8 cups fresh grape juice
- 1/2 cup sugar, to taste ( depends on the quality of the grape juice)
- 8 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 rose-scented geranium leaves (optional)
- Cinnamon to taste
- roughly crushed roasted almonds or walnuts
- sesame seeds
- In 2 cups of grape juice, dilute the corn starch, whisk well..
- In a large pot pour the rest of grape juice.
- Add the leaves and bring to boil.
- Boil at low temperature until you get only the half of the volume or even less.
- Remove leaves
- Add the diluted corn starch and keep stirring.
- Boil until entire mixture is creamy.
- Add almonds and cinnamon.
- Remove from heat.
- Pour the cream in a greased mold.
- Set to cool. Cover with plastic wrap before placing in refrigerator.
- Cut into bites, coat the bottom of the pieces with sesame seed and place on a serving dish.
Tip: instead of 8 cups grape juice you can use 7 cups of grapes juice and one of wine! Why not?
