I love grapes, especially in my curried chicken salad.

Organic grapes are wonderful because you don't have to worry about washing chemicals off of them. I eat them plain for breakfast, in a cottage cheese or yogurt salad for lunch and as a dessert or snack at night! My husband and I were both told by our doctor to eat grapes for iron every day.

I love frozen organic grapes – the best snack in the world! Especially good with some frozen white chocolate chips in the mix.

I have always loved grapes, but now they play a lager role than ever in my diet. I was diagnosed with wet macular degeneration 1 1/2 years ago. I began to research nutritional approaches to halt or slow down the disease process. I discovered that grapes contain a specific antioxidant that actively interferes with the degenerative changes in the retina. Now I really love grapes!

I like to freeze them and throw them in green smoothies instead of ice cubes for more flavor.

I love that they are refreshing. They are a snack but good for you at the same time. A way I like them is to wash and freeze and then pop them in my mouth--so good on a hot summer day.

I love the fresh organic grapes, and mix them with banana pieces, pieces of oranges and organic (no extra sugar) coconut flakes: yum :).

Grapes of all kinds find their way into my salads, pasta, chicken pork and seafood dishes! They are absolutely my favorite snack.

We eat all varieties of grapes in our house. They add a burst of flavor to salads and are a great travel snack for the kids. The dog prefers them frozen!

I love the versitility of grapes. From juice to salads or paired with poultry they add a burst of sweetness and texture to many foods. Plus they're wonderful just eaten out of hand.

The "grape" thing about grapes is their sharing quality. Just the other day, I went to a winery, and saw a party of people paring their fresh collection of green, red, and black grapes with their wine, cheese, and crackers. Passing around a bunch of grapes, I noticed they are the perfect food to share. Can't wait to have a "grape" cookbook to find out all the flavors grapes can bring to a dish, cooked in different ways! Cheers!

I grew up in a family that has vineyards and used to spend a lot of time walking by the vineyards and picking fresh organic grapes. The fresh picked flavor is amazing! I enjoy cooking with grapes and also make jellies and preserves. Not to mention how I love to enjoy a glass of wine made with organic grapes! I would love to have a copy of this book!

Hard to resist the clean, citrus taste of colorful grapes along with their bright luscious look. To eat or to drink them - oh the possibilities!

Posted on the refrigerator here is a poster of Cesar Chavez ~ 1991! The message is: "Our struggle will endure among millions of caring people in distant places... and once again our food will be a source of nourishment and life." Boycott Grapes in 1991! This changed the path of my life in many ways. My goodness.... I knew about Cesar Chavez when I was in high school in the late 1960's and early 1970'; when I first heard the word "ecology". What more can be said about the impact organically grown grapes have made on our entire culture, if not the world? And in how many ways? I am grateful for people ~ and grapes ~ who have expanded the awareness of us all! Organically grown grapes and everything about them rock!!!! :)

This cookbook sounds AMAZING! I hope I win. As a chef, I enjoy using organic grapes in my recipes. My clients are always surprised. They are an incredibly versatile fruit and are delicious in any form-from sweet raw grapes (always perfect with cheese) to sour pickled grapes. I would love this book to try some new recipes out!

WOW...cooking with grapes (green, black, red). For years I have eaten grapes as a wonderful snack and during the last handful of years have been freezing grapes to enjoy as a refreshing snack during the hot weather. And now after reading this blog I now am intrigued with the prospect of cooking with grapes and can't wait to try some of the recipes. Thanks for broadened my horizons of the endless possibilities of cooking with grapes!
