Grapes:
Grapes are like juicy pearls from Nature's larder. Red or green they are equally delicious and they can be used in a variety of culinary ways. Toss a handful in a curry 30 minutes prior to serving - they will keep their shape and create a wonderful sweet explosion hit within the mouth. Use as an easy addition to fruit salads, dessert tarts, and puddings. There is no easier to serve fruit than grapes - no peeling or chopping required, just a quick rinse and you are good to go! 

Try this next time you feel like a decadent quick party fix ( for adults wink, wink! )

Ingredients: 
  • Seedless Grapes - red or green, quantity up to you... depends on quests and portions required
  • Bubbly - preferably Champagne but any bubbly alcohol will do 
Method: two ways to do this actually.
  • 1. Using a syringe, fill it with bubbly then inject it directly into each grape in the small hole where the grape has come off the stem - be careful not to overfull. Place a tooth pick into each grape and place them onto a platter. Chill till ready to serve. Great for a party starter! 
  • 2. Skewer 3 grapes onto a tooth pick and place these into champagne flutes - fill with champagne, keep chilled until ready to serve.
