Do you ever feel the need for a quick treat? Try popping a grape or two into your mouth. Grapes are plump and juicy – a great combination of sweet and tart. Packed with nutrients and antioxidants, they serve your body well. There are thousands of different grape varieties around the world. Although they are usually grown during warmer months, you can find them in grocery stores year round. Here in the united states you are likely to see red, green, and black grapes filling the produce section. Whether you choose a handful as a snack, or add them to a recipe, there are many ways to use grapes. Here are the Top Ten Ways to Enjoy Grapes from fruitsandveggies.org. You can find links to the recipes mentioned, plus a few more of my favorites below.
You might remember the Grape Tasting Treat recipe I posted awhile back. It’s still one of my favorites.
