Jukes Wine And Food Puddings Berries Summer Pudding

Black, goose, blue, rasp, berri-berri (bad joke), logan, huckle, straw, Halle (good joke), mul, cran, bil and his amoureuse damson bounce around in many different recipes. Whether they are served au naturel (naked!), in a juicy compote, or cooked in a summer pudding, they all love the talented sweet wine superhero Semillon and his trusty sidekick Muscat. Track down these grapes from France – Sauternes, Saussignac, Monbazillac, Loupiac and Cadillac all fall neatly into the Semillon camp; while Muscat de Rivesaltes, de Beaumes-de-Venise, de Frontignan and de Lunel all advertise Muscat on the label, so are easier to spot on the shelves. Aussie late-picked Muscats are all great and inexpensive, but watch out for liqueur Muscats, as they are wildly different and will destroy a delicate fruit purée. Having said that, you won’t care, as you’ll be a giggling wreck in the corner.
