Recipe for Greek Style Green Grape Sauce

Written by in , Comments Off on Recipe for Greek Style Green Grape Sauce

This sauce recipe is traditionally prepared on the island of Crete using green, unrip grapes. It is typically used as a topping for pork, game meats, and some vegetable dishes, such as eggplant. The sauce it produces is delicate and fairly sour.

Greek Style Green Grape Sauce (Agouritha) Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 pound green, unripe grapes
  • Water, for boiling

Instructions to Make Greek Green Grape Sauce:

Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add the unripe grapes and let them boil for a few seconds. Remove the grapes with a slotted spoon. Remove any stems.

Place the grapes in a strainer with a wide mesh. A plastic strainer is best. Press the grapes through the strainer using a wooden spoon. Use a somewhat gentle hand. You want to brush the grapes without completely pulverizing them.

Once they’re all pressed through, rinse the strainer and line with a layer of cheesecloth. Add the grapes to the strainer again and do this for another round. The end result is that you would have produced a smooth, slightly pulpy sauce. Store the sauce in the refrigerator for up to a week. You may also freeze it.
