A great treat for those hot summer days, frozen grapes are a burst of flavor when you bite into them. Still soft on the inside, but oh so deliciously sweet (or sour) and refreshing.
Please note that grapes can pose a choking hazard for children ages five and under. See the warning below for how to cut grapes properly for young children.
1 large bunch seedless grapes, red or green
Gather the ingredients.
Wash grapes and pat dry with a paper towel.
Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Place grapes on paper towels, trying to leave some space between them. Freeze until firm.
- It takes approximately four hours for grapes to freeze so be patient while waiting, as it's worth it.
- Eat frozen grapes while they're still frozen. Don't let the grapes thaw, as they may become mushy.
- Frozen grapes are a great substitute in place of ice cubes for chilling your wine. You'll never have a watered-down drink again, plus you can enjoy a sweet treat while you're enjoying your favorite glass of wine.
- Use seedless grapes, as it won't be enjoyable biting on a seed in a frozen grape.
Selecting the Right Grapes to Freeze
When grapes are frozen, the sugar in them begins to crystallize thus making them sweeter or sourer. Choose the right grape for you and know that if the grape is already sweet it will become sweeter, if they're sour, you will get that biting sour taste. Most people enjoy the sweeter grapes.
- Roll the grapes in sugar before freezing, for a special, even sweeter touch.
How to Store
Place grapes in a freezer-safe bag to freeze where they will stay good for nine to 12 months.
Grapes — Choking Hazard for Young Children
Grapes of any kind can pose a choking hazard for children ages five and under. Cut grapes in half lengthwise and cut them again into 1/2-inch pieces for young children. Do not cut in half widthwise as they can still get lodged in little throats and cause them to choke.
