Grape Caramel Sauce


Combine 12 ounces of the grapes in a blender or food processor with the lemon juice, and puree.  Set aside.  Coarsely chop the remaining grapes.

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water, and bring to a boil, stirring a few times.  Simmer without stirring, brushing down the sides of the pot with a brush dipped in water if crystals start forming on the pot.  When the mixture has turned a deep golden brown, remove from the heat and whisk in the pureed grapes until a smooth sauce has formed.  Put back on the heat and simmer until mixture has reduced by 1/3 and forms a smooth, caramel sauce.  Whisk in the cream and salt; stir in the chopped remaining grapes and serve.
