Grapes

STORING YOUR GRAPES
Your sweet, juicy grapes can keep for up to 2 weeks when stored and handled properly.

Grapes should always be refrigerated to maximize their shelf life. Store them unwashed and dry; rinse before serving or adding to a recipe. They should not be squeezed or compressed as this can damage the berries. Like most berries, grapes tend to absorb odors. Do not store them next to things like green onions or leeks.

ENJOY YOUR GRAPES
Grapes can be eaten fresh or frozen and are a wonderful addition of flavor and texture to anything from salads to sides, drinks to desserts. Whether sautéed, roasted, grilled or even pickled, grapes make it easy for anyone to take their snacks and meals to the next level.

OUR GRAPES ARE HEALTHY!
A cup of grapes contains just 120 calories with no fat, no cholesterol, and virtually no sodium. Grapes are also a good source of vitamin K. Grapes of all colors are a natural source of antioxidants and other polyphenols. Grape polyphenols contribute to a healthy heart and may also play a role in promoting healthy aging and other aspects of health.

FUN FRUIT TIP
You can freeze your grapes for future snacking or use in cooking. Freezing grapes is simple, delicious, and makes them fun to eat. Frozen grapes make a great, healthy snack on a hot day and can be used in place of ice cubes. The frozen grapes will keep your drink cold without watering it down!

FREEZING GRAPES
Wash grapes and let them dry. Place on jelly roll pan (or any pan with sides) and place in the freezer. When they are thoroughly frozen, place in plastic containers or bags and store in the freezer. Grapes will last several months in the freezer.
