Go for plump, fresh-looking grapes that are firmly attached to their stems. Although table grapes generally include larger varieties, size is not a measure of taste.
Grapes are a truly versatile fruit: crushed for juice, dried for raisins and currants, or eaten out of the hand as a natural and delicious snack at any time. Thoroughly wash grapes before serving and enjoy as a healthy snack, in salads or as part of a cheese platter.
Store grapes in a plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper drawer away from vegetables for up to one week.
