img_0671

This was a different way to eat radicchio – and the sweet glaze cut out a lot of the bitterness.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c. apple juice

1/3 c. balsamic vinegar

2 T. apple jelly or unseasoned apple butter

2 small heads radicchio (cut through core into 4 wedges)

Olive oil

Crumbled Blue cheese

Directions:

Combine apple juice, vinegar, and apple jelly or butter in a sauce plan. Boil for about 15 minutes or reduced to 1/2 cup.

Brush both sides of the radicchio wedges with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Grill until charred.

Drizzle with glaze and sprinkle blue cheese on top.
