Grape result….

You may recall a few months ago I promised to report back on the great grape experiment….

Well….its been an interesting one!  I must admit that the vast majority of grapes dried to nothing but a puff of empty skin…simply a shell of their former selves, or shrivelled & wrinkled to something hard and bitter.  However….those that made it through are plump, juicy and incredibly sweet!  There is only a small plate worth (the ones I haven’t eaten!), but it was fun to try to turn red muscatel grapes into raisins.  Now I just need to decide what to do with the ones I do have….I don’t expect they will store well, so they need to make their way into a recipe sometime very soon….
