Freezing Grapes - How To Freeze Grapes
Freezing grapes is so simple and delicious, and they are fun to eat. Makes a great, healthy snack on a hot day. It is like
eating a grape popsicle or a sorbet! Grapes are low calorie, fat free, and a wonderful alternative for sweets when eating on the go. Also makes a great
poolside treat on a hot summer day. If you have not yet tried frozen grapes, you must ASAP.
Using Fresh Grape Leaves
Grape leaves are best picked from grape vines
in the Spring, while they are still tender and unsprayed. Select young whole,
medium-size leaves with a good light green color and no holes. They should also
be shiny, smooth leaves. Avoid fuzzy thick leaves.
NOTE: Be sure and pick them before
the first spray as some sprays are toxic. Most of the spays used today are non-toxic and water soluble, but sulfur taste is not what you want on your grapes.

Verjus (pronounced vair-ZHOO), sometimes spelled
verjuice, is a French term that when translated into English mean “green
juice.” It is a medieval condiment that was once a staple of French provincial cooking and is now enjoying a
worldwide revival. Verjus is made from semi-ripe and unfermented wine grapes. The grapes are
hand-picked from the vine during a period called veraison (when the grapes
change in color and the berries begin to soften enough to press).
