Is there anything more refreshing than the juicy sweetness that bursts when eating a cold grape? I know I’m not the only one who tries to keep grapes cold for ultimate enjoyment, even making sure to put them next to a cooler pack in my lunch bag. My son has gotten on the grapey train too, gobbling them up by the bowlful after a long afternoon playing outside.

Get the dish on all things grape in this post. They’re not just a perfect lunchbox or post-play snack – grapes can be used in all sorts of recipes, making a sweet and surprising addition to lunch and dinner (or, of course, dessert!).

Try a few of these recipes to sweeten your meal:

I use halved grapes,as you would any other fruit, in crisps and cobblers. Delicious alone or in combination with other fruit.

Marian's butter-sauted calves liver with green grapes, sounds like a winner. I just happen to have both in my fridge, I think that would go good with some buttered brown rice and some sauteed balsamic onions.

Add red grapes to cherry gelatin (can also used pitted cherries) . Chill till set. Top with sour cream. Sprinkle grated cheddar on top. Sounds weird but is delicious !
