RECIPE: Moist Roast Turkey

Ninety percent of Americans serve turkey on Thanksgiving; 50% of us serve it for Christmas dinner as well.

Gourmet food producer Sable & Rosenfeld suggests a delicious and fragrant turkey garnish of figs, fresh sage and “Champagne” grapes.

The smallest of the seedless grapes, what is popularly known as the Champagne grape, is an ancient Greek grape variety properly called the Black Corinth, Vitis vinifera. It’s the grape that produces the fruit known as Zante currants. (Zante currants are not true currants: Here’s the scoop.)

The “Champagne” grape is not used for making Champagne. The sparkling wine is made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir or a combination of the two; Pinot Meunier can be added for fruitiness.


So why is the Corinth grape called the Champagne grape?

The reference purportedly comes from a magazine shoot where a flute of Champagne was photographed next to a cluster of the small grapes. Alas, a misnomer was born.

But back to the turkey. Here‘s the recipe for a moist roast turkey with crisp skin, from Sable & Rosenfeld.
