Have a grape summer

June 2, 2016

I love grapes, especially the ones that are very firm and crisp. I don’t care for soft, squishy ones, even if they taste good. I don’t get to eat a lot of grapes because they have too much sugar in them, but a few here and there are allowed. 


They make such great snacks and additions to all sorts of salads and even some beverages and main dishes as well as desserts.


As far as Thompson Seedless grapes go, I much prefer the old-fashioned type that were small, round, almost golden color and very sweet. Now, green grapes are usually huge, oblong and not nearly as good tasting as the old kind. Well, that’s just my opinion, of course. The big grapes do sell, so that is good news for our farmers.


Now, on to the recipes; hope you enjoy! ...
