Raspberry and Champagne Grape Sugar Free Sauce/Filling
I remember the first time I tasted champagne grapes. I was pleasantly surprised how good they were. Ever since that day I dreamed about getting a whole bunch of grapes and putting them in a barrel and stomping them with my bare feet. Well even though that sounds like so much fun. I know nobody would want to consume any of my foot stomped grape juice. I used a colander and my fist to squeeze the cramp out of two packages of champagne grapes. I bought them from Trader Joe's at about two dollars each pack. The juice came out green. In my excitement I forgot to measure out how much juice the 2 packages of grapes yielded. I added the juice to a pot, cooked the juice on low heat till it reduced more than half in size. The plan was to make a grape juice concentrate to sweeten the sauce/filling. I added the fresh raspberries, cooked them a few minutes till lightly broken down and I thicken this sauce/filling with arrowroot starch.
