Enjoy frozen grapes as a sweet, nutritious treat
Have you ever tried freezing grapes? Frozen grapes are a refreshing, nutritious and sweet treat during those hot summer months. Plus, these perfect icy-pole substitutes are quick and easy to prepare. Here’s a simple guide on how to make frozen grapes with your favourite Sun World grapes.
- Always Choose Seedless Grapes: 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 Grapes 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 and dry the grapes by patting them gently with a clean tea towel. Remove each grape from their stems.
- Then Freeze!: place your clean, dry grapes on a baking tray lined with baking paper and pop into the freezer. Once completely frozen, place the grapes in a freezer bag and continue to store them in the freezer until you’re ready to enjoy them. Freezing them on a baking tray (and not in a bag) means the grapes won’t clump together and will freeze more evenly.
Freezing grapes has never been easier! How will you enjoy yours? In a smoothie, added to cocktails, or as a cool summer snack? If you’re looking for a little inspiration, our Sun World Recipe Page is full of fun ideas to make your summer extra sweet!
