Back from hols. and masses of grapes.

Will obviously give bunches to friends and family. What else can I do with them ? Dessert grapes so wine not a real option.

Grape Chutney?

or dry them for raisins, or juice them to make grape juice. Not done much with ours this year (same as usual at the moment) except eat them and feed them to the chickens.

you can pickle them. I did them once and they were really nice, unfort. can't for life of me find the actual recipe I used - not really a problem as too expensive to make if you have to buy them. However I have got grape pickle recipes which I can let you hve if it will help.

Pickled Grapes

Here we go:
1 kg. grapes, white or black
250ml white wine vinegar
155g gran.sugar
1 tspn mustard seeds
1 cinnamon stick
1 tspn black peppercorns
1 bay leaf
Pack washed, dry grapes into sterilised glass jar.
Dissolve sugar in vinegar, add spices and bay leaf and boil 2 mins. then pour over the grapes. Cover & seal. Store in cool dark place 4 weeks before using.
(I've not done this particular recipe but the one I did a few years back was rather nice. I served them with cocktail sticks with drinks)
