will do, they need to be seedless grapes

Bugger, mine are Niagara which are the best tasting (IMO), but they do have seeds. I give away lots of grapes every year but always end up with way to many and friends, work mates, family cant keep up with them. What a problem to have aye!

I make grape sauce using a plum sauce recipe, it's yummy!

actually, cut one open last night, and they seem to have only 1 pip in them. rather small grapes.

found a couple of recipes on google, I thinkwould be ok, except they say to cut the ends of, so liquid gets in. the ones I have have not been cut, just the stalk pulled off.think red grapes are the ones to use.

I ferment mine and bottle seems quite nice if a little intoxicating might catch on so won't give out the recipe.

Pickled Grapes

*Snip plenty of fresh ripe grapes off their bunches with a pair of scissors, leaving a short stem attached to each one.

*Wash the grapes and dry each one carefully with a cloth.

*Pack the grapes into jam jars.

*In each jar, put some bits of fresh tarragon, a clove, and a couple of white pepper corns, plus about a teaspoon of rapadura (dehydrated cane juice). I varied these quantities depending on the sizes of the jars.

*Then cover the grapes with apple cider vinegar, put the lids on the jars, and put them away in a dark cupboard. They are supposed to be stored for about 6 weeks before using.

Editing to add this "Off Topic" a little but Grapes.

A Student recently gave me some sugar coated grapes as a treat, very nice and they exploded within my mouth superbly, apparently can keep for ages like this too.

Cheers

Well they look interesting. By the looks of it im going to have a bumper grape harvest, this could be a good option for them. Let me know if you try a recipe ( post on here would be great) and what they were like and I may try myself :-)

Ick. We just eat ours, as is. Heaps this year here too, but that's OK, loads of friends and family want them too.
