Hot Weather Treat: Frozen Grapes

Whether you're normally a fan of grapes or not, you have got to try them frozen! The grapes become like mini-popsicles that we can eat by the handful. They're crunchy, a little sweet, and incredibly addictive. Even better, we don't have to wait until dessert to justify eating them!

All we do to get the grapes ready to freeze is wash them and let them air dry. Then we pull them off the stems and spread them out on a plate or sheet pan to freeze. Give them a few hours in the freezer, and they're ready to eat! We like to divvy them up and store them in 1-cup portions for easy snacking.

For a boozy twist and a great dinner party appetizer, try soaking the grapes in white wine before freezing them! Cut a sliver off the top of the grape to expose the flesh and to help it absorb the wine, then soak them for an hour or so before freezing.

Have you ever had frozen grapes?
