For those of you who have never tried frozen grapes before, here's the low-down on how it's done.
1. Wash Grapes thoroughly
2. Pick off from the stems
3. Set individual grapes on paper towel and dry off
4. Put in zip-lock baggy and store in freezer
5. Let freeze for 5+ hours and enjoy
Use within 1-2 weeks for tastiest grapes. They will stay good pretty much forever but they may tend to lose their sweetness if you leave them in the freezer for too long.
I like to add them in my cold cereal in the morning. The hubby things I am weird but I love the contrast of the crunch of the grapes with the softer cereal. Plus they help keep your milk super cold. Try it and let me know if you are a fan.
-Other uses: add to yogurt, top your ice cream, put in smoothies.
