FROZEN GRAPES

First off, a bit of history. Grapes were introduced to America by the Spanish explorers about three centuries ago. Grapes are berries, with the leathery covering and a fleshy inside. There are more than 8K of the different grape varieties.

One cup of grapes contains approx 16g of carbs (roughly one carb); it provides over a quarter of the daily recommended values of Vitamins K and C.

Did you know?  Grape seeds are edible; they are a rich source of antioxidants.

Grapes are commonly used in salads but my favorite is frozen grapes. These are life savers if you live in a studio and have to put up with a 4-cf refrigerator. Grapes don’t tolerate storage very well but thrive in a freezer. They make a great little frozen snack, especially good in the middle of a hot summer. Tested in my kitchen.

  1. Oh wow! I buy grapes every week and love snacking on them. I always preferred the seedless because I thought that the seeds weren’t edible and it’s easier just popping the seedless ones into your mouth. It’s good to learn that the seeds are edible 🙂
