Enjoying frozen grapes as a sweet, nutritious treat
Have you ever tried freezing grapes? Frozen grapes are a refreshing, nutritious and sweet treat during those warm summer months. Plus, these perfect popsicle substitutions are quick and easy to prepare. Here’s a simple guide on how to make frozen grapes with your favorite Sun World grapes.
- Always Choose Seedless Grapes: Make sure to purchase seedless grapes to avoid biting into a frozen seed. Thankfully, all of Sun World’s grape varieties are seedless – even the black grapes! You can learn more about the delicious seedless grapes we offer by visiting our Products page.
- Wash, Dry and De-Stem: Place the grapes in a colander and rinse in cool, running water. After a thorough washing, let the excess water drain from the colander and dry the grapes by patting them gently with a clean towel. Remove grape berries from their stems.
- Then Freeze!: Place your clean, dry grapes on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and place in the freezer. Once completely frozen, place the grapes in a freezer bag and continue to store them in the freezer until ready to enjoy. By using the baking sheet method first, the grapes will not clump together and will freeze more evenly.
