What To Make When You've Got Grapes
Plush, sweet and juicy table grapes abound in Australian summertime. So much so, that during most annual Aussie grape harvests, we’re lucky enough to occasionally face that desirable dilemma on how best to build variation into our consumption of these bundles of sweetness, hydration, antioxidants and vitamins.
Chowed with cheese, frozen as ice cubes, fruit kebabed, jellied or juiced into drinkables - there’s definately more ways with grapes than simply leaving a bunch of past-best grapes to become an impromptu raisin experiment.
Here’s a few different ways to use grapes in recipes when you have something of a surplus.
