Green Grape Wine Pudding

This dessert is called Saarländer Becher in German which literally translates to "Saarland Cup". Saarland, located on the French Luxembourg border, is one of the 16 German states. The capital of Saarland is Saarbrücken.

I love the flexibility of this recipe. Green Grape Wine Custard can be served warm, just after making it or it can be chilled to be enjoyed cold later.

You can serve this dessert in any vessel you choose. However, it's always fun to use different shaped clear dessert glasses for a more decorative presentation. I recommend arranging the white grape halves inside the glasses so that alternately both sides of the halves are showing through the glass. 

For an alternate look, you can use red grape instead of the green or both if you want to mix it up. I also garnished the dessert with a grape rolled in powdered sugar. this is optional.

You'll need a double boiler to make this recipe. Don't worry, if you don't have one. As an alternative, take two nesting saucepans, place about an inch of water in the larger one and fit the smaller one inside the larger pan. 

I used sauternes wine for this recipe. Sauternes is a sweet dessert wine from the Bordeaux region of France, a nod to the French bordering region this dessert comes from. However, you can use any sweet white wine you might have one hand.
