A Girl's Gotta Eat (Summer Edition)

New here? Start here...

Did You Know...
...that grapes got to America with some help from Franciscan monks? They used them for the purpose of making sacramental wine. - the-perfectshape.com


Here is a nice and simple summer treat when you need a little relief from the heat and your tastebuds are craving something sweet. (Ok, I don't think I could rhyme that much even if I tried! That was purely coincidence. Ha!)

GRAPES! Oh-pa!


Personally, our little family likes red grapes over green grapes. I think because we have had more sweet than sour grapes with the red variety than green. True story. So we bought a bag of grapes this week from the grocery store and I want to show you what one of our favorite summer treats is to eat around here. Frozen grapes!

Step 1: Take out a bunching of grapes from the general population. This will be your frozen bunch. I don't do the whole bag because we like both fresh and frozen at any given moment, so I give the family options still. Cause I'm nice like that. But if you have a larger family, then by all means throw the whole bag in there because these will go quick.


Step 2: Wash the grapes thoroughly.


Step 3: I separate each one from the vine and individually wipe and wash all the gray dirt off in the running water so they are nice and clean and ready for transport.

Step 4: Transfer cleaned grapes into a nice plastic bowl or any freezer safe bowl you may have in the house.


Step 5: Place in desired freezer and give it some time in the chiller to get solid as a rock (anyone else hear Tina Turner in their head right now?).

After they are frozen they are great to just grab one here and there and just suck on them till they thaw and then they get all juicy and soft and safe for consumption. And enjoy!
WARNING: NOT SAFE FOR INFANTS AS IT MAY POSE AS A CHOKING HAZARD. USE PRECAUTION WITH YOUNG CHILDREN. We want everyone to be safe and survive the summer.


My best,

Q: What about you's guys? Red or green grapes? Who reigns supreme in your Kitchen Stadium?
